Superior mes­en­ter­ic ­artery aneu­rysms are ­rare, com­pris­ing ­only 8% of all vis­cer­al ­artery aneu­rysms. Aneurysms at the ­site are ­very sus­cep­ti­ble to rup­ture, irre­spec­tive of ­size and may be dif­fi­cult to man­age ­even in the ­case of elec­tive sur­gery. In the ­absence of seri­ous com­pli­cat­ing fac­tors, the treat­ment of ­choice is exci­sion of the aneu­rysm and recon­struc­tion of the ­artery, if nec­es­sary, to main­tain paten­cy. We ­report the suc­cess­ful resec­tion of an aneu­rysm and the sub­se­quent recon­struc­tion of the super­i­or mes­en­ter­ic ­artery ­which was direct­ly anas­to­mosed to the aor­ta ­after resec­tion of an aneu­rysm.
