Abstract

Surgical treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm after previous pneumonectomy is a challenge because of the impaired respiratory function and increased surgical risks. Endovascular aneurysm repair in anatomically suited high-surgical-risk patients offers excellent short-term results and provides good protection from aneurysm-related death. In this article, we report a successful endovascular aneurysm repair of an infrarenal aortic aneurysm in a patient with past left pneumonectomy.
