Aortic stump blow-out occuring secondary to aortoenteric fistula (AEF) is a serious, but fortunately rare situation. We report a successful correction of reoccured stump blow-out following AEF seen after removal of infected abdominal aortic vascular graft in a patient who had been operated previouslyfor the same complication.
