Aneurysms of the thoraco-abdominal aorta are a particular diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, despite the fact that they constitute an insignificant percentage of aneurysms in general. In the case of non-ruptured aneurysms in patients not burdened with significant additional disease, they can be treated by implanting a thoraco-abdominal prosthesis. The treatment of patients burdened with additional disease or with this type of ruptured aneurysm remains problematic.
In this article, we are going to describe the case of a patient with a ruptured thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm in the abdominal section, which was treated in our centre by implanting a vascular prosthesis below the renal arteries with a delay in the operation for the period of repair of the thoracic section of the aneurysm.
