Abstract

Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is one of vascular surgery challenges, because of its differences in decision making about time and type of surgery (open vs. endovascular).
Case Report: We have case of patient with old pulmonary tuberculosis came with recurrence of AAA after open surgery. We decided to perform endovascular treatment, but there was an anatomical difficulty for device selection.
Conclusions: Although recurrence of AAA is rare, it has more diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Recurrence after open surgery occurs less than endovascular surgery. Treatment after open surgery is better to conducted with endovascular manner, because of general condition of patient and probable difficult abdomen due to adhesion of previous laparotomy.
