Ten years following aorto-bifemoral bypass performed for Leriche's syndrome, a patient experienced postprandial abdominal angina and resultant weight loss. Aortic occlusion distal to graft suture line and subsequent aneurysm formation with thrombus in it was detected. There was 99% stenosis at the origin of celiac trunk and complete occlusion of both superior and inferior mesenteric arteries. Infrarenal aortic graft interposition and exclusion of aneurysm sac were performed concomitant with aorto-celiac and aorto-mesenteric bypass.
