Marfan’s syn­drome is a rare hered­i­tary dis­ease of con­nec­tive tis­sue, the sur­gi­cal inter­est of which is in its pro­pen­sity to the devel­op­ment of arte­ri­al aneu­rysms. We ­describe the case of a 40-year-old male who was admit­ted to our hos­pi­tal ­because of throm­bo­sis of the right com­mon iliac ­artery and who was treat­ed with a new tech­nique: throm­boen­dar­te­rec­to­my of the right com­mon iliac ­artery and cov­er­ing of the ­artery with a syn­thet­ic graft, in order to avoid the risk of devel­op­ing an aneu­rysm of the endar­te­rec­tom­ised iliac ­artery. This is a new tech­nique, here ­described for the first time in the inter­na­tion­al lit­er­a­ture.
