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.
