Abstract

Background: Aortic graft-colonic fistulae are a rare complication of aortic reconstructive surgery. Methods and findings: A comprehensive review of this entity was performed based on the available literature from 1950 until 2006. Available reports were analyzed with respect to demographics, prior surgical intervention and its indication, prosthetic material used during the initial intervention, clinical presentation, the time interval in between the initial operation and symptoms, the method of treatment of the aortic graft-colonic fistula and its outcome.
