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.
