Celiac artery aneurysm is a rare and its rupture is the most frequent and serious complication. The patient who underwent aneurysmectomy and aorto - celiac artery synthetic prosthesis graft interposition in another cardiovascular surgery center two years ago, was admitted to our department with complaints of fever and abdominal discomfort. Computed tomography revealed an aneurysm with 1 cm of diameter at the beginning of celiac artery and intraperitoneal hemorrhage. Acute hematocrit descent was occured and then cardiac arrest was taken place. So, emergency thoracotomy was done. Aorta was compressed with hand and at the same time internal cardiac ressusication was done then cross clamp was placed onto aorta. Median abdominal incision was done and ruptured celiac artery aneurysm was observed. Infected graft was removed and PTFE graft was interposed from descending aorta to a. hepatica propria, away from the infected area. During 17 months of follow-up period graft no complication was observed. We believe that because of its rarity, tendency
to be asymptomatic along with high incidence of rupture, celiac artery aneurysms should not be underestimated.
