The coexistence of cholelithiasis and abdominal aortic aneurysm is not uncommon. However, cholecystectomy at the time of abdominal aortic reconstruction has generally been delayed because of the potential contamination of the graft. The case described here had concomitant cholelithiasis and abdominal aortic aneurysm, both of which were required to be treated, and was successfully treated with a combination of retroperitoneal abdominal aortic reconstruction and gassless laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
