Abstract

Background. To evaluate outcome in patients with infected aortic graft in order to identify the profile of those at higher risk of complications after the treatment. Methods. Multi-center study conducted in 42 Italian Vascular Surgery Centers on a total of 164 patients (54 patients with aorto-enteric fistula, 23 patients with groin infection, 56 patients with clear clinical evidence of graft infection and 31 patients with infection based on non specific clinical findings). Results. Thirty-day mortality occurred in 34 patients (20.7%) and 7 amputations were performed in the same period. Statistical analysis showed that emergency surgery (p=0.01) and aorto-enteric fistula (p=0.03) are positive predictors of 30-day mortality. Gastrointestinal bleeding (p
