Management of infected aortic aneurysms remains one of the most challenging clinical problems for the vascular surgeon, as they are rare and difficult to treat. Curative treatment is achieved by removal of all infected native tissue followed by a vascular reconstruction. Endovascular repair can also be used as a “bridge therapy” to reduce the mortality in these patients.
