Proximal suture line disruption is one of the severe complications of Syria thetic vascular grafting for arteriosclerotic aortic disorders. The pathology of clinical and experimental cases revealed that a small bite of each stitch cut into the host aorta and became disrupted. Making each stitch as large as possible in the host aorta is the first procedural choice for aortic replacement surgery. Protecting the anastomotic line with a synthetic mesh cloth wrapping is preferable.

    A case in which repeated infection defied diagnosis after aortobifemoral bypass graft is reported. The key investigation proved to be computed tomography (CT), which detected the right limb of the graft penetrating the cecum. This is a complication of graft surgery that has not been previously...
