This study states that Primary and secondary thoracic aortic infections are rare but associated with high morbidity and mortality. There is currently no consensus on their optimal treatment. Arterial allografts have been shown to be resistant to bacterial colonization. Complete excision of infected material, especially synthetic grafts, combined with in situ aortic repair is considered the best treatment of abdominal aortic infections. The aim of this study was to assess the management of thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic infections using arterial allografts. The end points were the early mortality and morbidity rates and early and late rates of reinfection, graft degeneration, and graft-related morbidity. During a mean development of 32.3 ± 23.7 months, three allograft-related inconveniences happened in survivors (15% of late survivors): one proximal and one distal bogus aneurysm with no proof of reinfection and one allograft-enteric fistula. The 1-year and 2-year endurance rates were 49.3% and 42.5%, individually.
Albeit uncommon, aortic contaminations are profoundly difficult. Careful administration incorporates total extraction of contaminated tissues or joins. Allografts offer a promising answer for aortic unite disease since they seem to oppose reinfection; nonetheless, the unions should be noticed endlessly in light of the danger of late join entanglements.
