1. Aneurysms of the abdominal aorta have been formed in dogs by use of the inferior vena cava as a patch graft. 2. These aneurysms do not increase in size for 18 months after formation. 3. The turbulence in these aneurysms is minimal as shown by the mercury strain gauge plethysmograph. 4. Microscopic study shows the entire wall of these autogenous vein aneurysms to be well preserved.
