Abstract

Fifty-year-old male developed an infected perigraft collection five years following wrapping of a Dacron tube with residual aneurysmal ascending aortic tissue. Treatment consisted of excision of the graft, debridement of the infected surrounding tissues, and replacement using a rifampin-soaked Hemashield tube graft. This case demonstrates the potential risk of wrapping prosthetic grafts with native aneurysmal aortic tissue.
