Abstract

An inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm complicated by primary aortoduodenal fistula was successfully treated by stent grafting. Pharmacotherapy with octreotide after endovascular aneurysm repair was also performed with the expectation of spontaneous and rapid closure of the fistula. Gastrointestinal endoscopy performed 10 days after endovascular aneurysm repair showed closure of the large aortoduodenal fistula, and oral intake was started on the operative day 16. To date, 16 months after the initial operation, the patient is doing well without any symptoms or signs of infection and without any antibiotic therapy.
