An instance of traumatic injury to the suprarenal inferior vena cava and aorta and subsequent development of two false aneurysms of the posterior wall of the abdominal aorta, compressing vena cava and renal vessels, causing renovascular hypertension, was treated successfully by two operations 38 days apart. Core cooling to 21 C, hypovolemic circulatory arrest, and intraluminal balloon occlusion of aorta were used uneventfully. To our knowledge, this is the second patient with two traumatic aneurysms of the abdominal aorta treated successfully by surgical management.
