The authors report a case of celiac aneurysm associated with juxtarenal aortic aneurysm in a patient with a familial history of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Both aneurysmatic lesions were managed using median transperitoneal approach: this took the form of reconstruction of the celiac axis using a prosthetic graft on the hepatic artery, repositioning of the splenic artery and aorto-aortic graft with suprarenal clamping. Postoperative angiography showed good patency of the graft and both the hepatic and splenic arteries. In the discussion the authors evaluate the problems of surgical management and the etiopathogenetic hypotheses for celiac aneurysms associated with abdominal aortic aneurysms.
