The authors present a technique consisting of retroperitoneal exposure, but not dissection of the inflammatory aneurysm, anastomosis of a bypass graft through a short thoracotomy to the lowermost thoracic aorta, carrying it down retroperitoneally to both femoral arteries and under brief occlusion of the descending thoracic aorta, opening of the aneurysm and intra-aneurysmal occlusion of the inflow and outflow to the aneurysm. An illustrative case is presented.
