Although the formation of a false aneurysm in the suture line of a synthetic graft is not an unexpected complication, a true aneurysm in the wall of a prosthesis is an uncommon event if judged by a few descriptions in the medical literature. The following report illustrates such a development in a woven teflon graft.
