Özet

Secondary aortoenteric fistula is one of the important causes of gastrointestinal bleeding following synthetic graft repair of the abdominal aorta. Secondary aortoenteric fistula is frequently observed after an aneurysm repair (from 0.3 up to 2% in the first 5 years), and associated with high rates of mortality and morbidity. The diagnosis of secondary aortoenteric fistula can be difficult. In this article, we present a case of gastrointestinal bleeding due to secondary aortoenteric fistula, successfully treated with Valdoni-Strong's procedure.
