Overview

Aortocaval fistula is a rare complication of abdominal aortic aneurysms, resulting in the venous bloodstream overpressure and, in the final stage, in the congestive heart failure.

The authors present a case of an abdominal aortic aneurysm rupturing into the inferior vena cava in a 72-year-old male, which was successfully managed using surgical resection.

Key words:
aortic aneurysm – inferior vena cava – aortocaval fistula
