To pre­vent ­direct sec­on­dary aor­toen­teric fis­tulas, a dev­as­tating com­pli­ca­tion of abdom­inal ­aortic sur­gery, we ­describe ­here a ­rapid, ­very ­easy to per­form and no ­cost oper­ating tech­nique. A ­part ­about 4 cm ­long of the vas­cular pros­thesis was cut to ­obtain a par­tial tail­ored ­ring ­which was ­passed ­through the pros­thesis. ­After the anas­tom­osis was real­ized, the tail­ored ­ring was ­hitched up to ­totally ­cover prox­imal anas­tom­osis and pre­vent ­direct con­tact ­between ­aorto-pros­thetic anas­tom­osis and the ­bowel.
