Abstract

Introduction: The management of peri-aortitis, a rare complication after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), is described in a patient with a solitary kidney. Report: A 64 year old man who developed peri-aortitis after elective EVAR for a 6.6 cm infrarenal AAA is reported. Peri-aortitis was diagnosed two months after the procedure and was successfully treated with corticosteroids. Conclusion: There is no clear consensus on the best medical therapy for peri-aortitis secondary to EVAR. Peri-aortitis must be considered in patients with ongoing systemic symptoms of inflammation after EVAR, and early management is crucial to the early resolution of symptoms.
