Abstract

We reviewed all papers most recently reported in the literature related to infected arterial aneurysms (IAAs) affecting the aorta and vascular beds other than the aorta. In this article, we report on vascular beds other than the aorta. As is the case for aortic IAAs, infected non-aortic aneurysms are rarely encountered. The majority of recent studies are limited to case reports and small series of unusual infected aneurysms. A comprehensive review of this entity was performed based on the available literature from January through December 2008 in all languages. Available reports were analyzed with respect to demographic features, type of presentation, methods of diagnosis and therapy, follow-up, and outcome (morbidity and mortality).
