The fifth successfully treated pseudoaneurysm of the visceral branch segment of abdominal aorta emphasizes individualized management of such complex lesions. Staged operative management of a supraceliac pseudoaneurysm by preliminary axillary-femoral bypass minimized potential intraoperative hazards. Visceral protection during aortic occlusion was simplified by axillary-femoral perfusion.
