The article examines the presence of a chronic contained rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with vertebral erosion on a 67-year-old man with a 6-month history of low-back pain. Initial findings revealed that there were no neurological deficits, and peripheral pulses are normal. An angiogram test on the patient showed an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm 5.2 centimeter (cm) in diameter. Clinicians found and excised a defect 2 cm in diameter at the posterior wall of the aorta, and replaced it with an entwined Darcon graft. The patient's back pain was resolved after the operation, which repaired the aneurysm.
