We describe a 60-year-old man with an infected aneurysm of the abdominal aorta who underwent aortic repair that included use of a bifurcated expanded polytetrafluoroethylene graft in a temporary extra-anatomical bypass. This procedure allowed arterial reconstruction to be performed before aortic debridement and avoided prolonged lower-limb ischemia. At a 13-month follow-up visit, the patient had no signs of recurrent infection.
