Abstract

Infectious complications after EVAR (endovascular aortic repair) develop in 1% of the total cases of device implantations for atherosclerotic aneurysm of the abdominal aorta.

Aortoenteric fistula is a rare and extremely dangerous complication of abdominal aortic reconstructive surgery, associated with high mortality if untreated.

This article describes a clinical case of infection after EVAR with formed aorto-duodenal fistula in a comorbid patient, an algorithm for choosing a technique and the process of surgical treatment.

In clinical case describedes possible options for surgical treatment and management tactics for patients with infection after EVAR, considered modern literary sources.

Keywords: EVAR, endoprosthesis infection, aorto-intestinal fistula, EVAR infection.
