Infected abdominal aneurysm due to Salmonella sepsis: report of a unique case treated using the superficial femoral vein

, : Infected abdominal aneurysm due to Salmonella sepsis: report of a unique case treated using the superficial femoral vein. Annals of Vascular Surgery 26(2): 279.E5-7

We describe a 61-year-old patient with an infected aneurysm of the abdominal aorta due to Salmonella sepsis. Treatment was successful and included aneurysm resection, extensive debridement, and reconstruction of the abdominal aorta using the superficial femoral vein, combined with long-term antibiotic therapy.
