Auteur(s) / Author(s)


Résumé / Abstract

The aneurysms of the celiac trunk are extremely rare. The authors describe a case of aneurysm of the celiac trunk dealt with aneurysmectomy and reconstruction by means of protesic graft made in Dacron. The patient was asymptomatic, and the aneurysm was discovered accidentally during abdominal computerized tomography (CT) for the stadiation of hepatic cirrhosis. The aneurysmectomy and the reconstruction have been executed by means of a prosthetic graft finish-terminal in Dacron, succeeding in preserving the three arteries originating from the celiac trunk (left gastric, hepatic, splenic). The histo-logic examination documented the degeneration of the medium trunk with loss of elastic fibers and atherosclerotic lesions. The postoperative course was complicated by hepatic ascites, and severe renal insufficiency. As a result of paracentesis and diuretic dose titration, the blood parameters and the conditions of the patient improved progressively until allowing the discharge on XL postoperative day in good conditions. Six months after, abdomen CT documented the integrity of the prosthetic graft and the absence of perianastomotic leak.
