Abstract

Aortic graft infection is a potentially lethal complication of open and endovascular repair of aortic aneurysm. Despite its relatively low overall incidence, the absolute numbers of graft infection are rising with a reported graft infection incidence of 0.2 to as high as 6% [1]. Overall morbidity and mortality rates are high, and in cases of patients’ readmission due to aortic graft infection, in-hospital mortality can be 18% or higher.
