Bovine Pericardial Patch Repair for Abdominal Aortic Pseudoaneurysm to Preserve Lumbar Arteries.

We describe a case of aortic repair using bovine pericardium for a pseudoaneurysm of a dissecting abdominal aorta. A 71-year-old man had undergone several aortic replacement surgeries for type B aortic dissection. He developed paraparesis after thoraco-abdominal aortic surgery and recovered. After 3 years, the scheduled computed tomography scan showed a pseudoaneurysm of the dissecting abdominal aorta. Because he was at high risk of spinal cord ischaemia, aortic repair using bovine pericardium was performed, and all lumbar arteries were preserved. During the 12-month follow-up, he was asymptomatic, and computed tomography scans showed no dilation of the aorta.
