Abstract Text

Ischemic colitis is a known complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. There is still no established consensus regarding the individual significance of factors related to this phenomenon. We detail the hospital course of a patient who unexpectedly developed acute colonic ischemia following open AAA repair. The pathophysiology, diagnostic modalities, potential preventative measures, and effect on patient morbidity and mortality will be presented. Reviewing the current literature, this will focus on the reported statistical importance of various risk factors including the incidence following traditional open repair and endovascular aneurysm repair.
