Objectives: Aortoduodenal syndrome is a rare clinical condition with duodenal obstruction caused by an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). We report the case of a 60-year-old patient with aortoduodenal syndrome successfully treated by means of open repair.

Methods: A 60-year-old man with history of smoking and hypertension came to Emergency Department after a prolonged emesis (about 7 days). Direct computed tomography (CT)-scan detected a 9.2-cm infrarenal AAA with compression of the third part of duodenum. Acute renal failure and bowel occlusion were diagnosed and managed.

Results: Patient underwent open surgery. Surgical team included a visceral surgeon. An aortic standard repair was performed with a 20-mm Dacron tube graft. No bowel surgery was needed. 6-month CT-scan revealed a successful repair with no sequelae.

Conclusions: Open repair seems to be a good option in aortoduodenal syndrome management. Prompt management of clinical signs and symptoms is crucial to obtain successful outcomes.
