Examines the use of cloth wrapping of unfavorable abdominal aortic aneurysms by researchers from New York City. Practice of resecting aneurysm and restoring direct continuity of the circulation with an appropriate prosthetic graft among surgeons; Decision of the surgeons not to manage the aneurysm by excision and grafting when it was felt that the risks entailed outweighed the possible advantages; Safety and efficacy of the wrapping technique in confining the expansion of the wall of the aneurysm and promoting fibroplasia across the porous mesh of a cloth.
