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.
