Abdominal aortic aneurysm with left-sided inferior vena cava (IVC) is rare. In preoperative examination, it is important to conduct roentgenologic studies and determine any venous anomalies. Proximal anastomosis is technically difficult because the IVC crosses to the right on the aneurysmal neck. In this case of a 71-year-old Japanese man, proximal anastomosis was conducted safely under wide vena cava mobilization and contraction in the superior direction. In vein resection, vessels should be reconstructed because vein communication is not methodical.
