Abstract

  Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a significant vascular condition in which a segment of the aorta becomes dilated below the diaphragm. Normal diameter is regarded to be less than 3 cm. According to various studies, the size threshold for operative treatment is usually 5 to 5.5 cm with asymptomatic patients. According to Brown., et al. [1], the diseased segment can grow to much larger sizes and in extreme cases can rupture catastrophically, resulting to fatal consequences reaching up to 80% mortality.

  We describe a case of a 30 year old, Filipina female diagnosed case of juxtarenal AAA who presented with severe back pain and underwent exploratory laparotomy, aborted open approach and eventually endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) using chimney graft technique last October 2013.
