Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysm in a HIV-positivePatient

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Advent of antiretroviral therapy has increased survival of patients with humanimmunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections, with the result that some of thesepatients now develop degenerative diseases, such as atherosclerotic aneurysms.Degenerative thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm is rare in HIV patients. In thisreport, a 63-year-old male patient with HIV submitted to open repair ofthoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. The patient did not suffer any type ofcomplication in the perioperative period and remained well in a 28-monthfollow-up period. In summary, open repair still remains a good alternative foraortic complex aneurysms even in HIV patients.

Mentions: Around 30 days after surgery, a control angiotomography showed patent visceralvessels and other features of the reconstruction were free from problems (Figure 3). The patient remained well during the28-month follow-up period.
