Gastrointestinal haemorrhage is a common cause of emergency admission of patients to surgical hospitals. Within the structure of nosological entities, not unreasonably referred to the rarest causes of gastrointestinal bleeding is the formation of an aortointestinal fistula whose early diagnosis is of paramount importance. The clinical picture may be different but it is mostly represented by gastrointestinal haemorrhage. The incidence of gastrointestinal fistulas following a surgical intervention ranges from 0.6 to 2.3%. Unless timely diagnosed and with incorrect therapeutic decision-making, the mortality rate amounts to 90%.

In this article we present a clinical case report regarding successful treatment of a patient presenting with a secondary aortoduodenal fistula occurring 5 years after previously performed aortofemoral bypass grafting and complicated by relapsing intestinal bleeding and acute ischaemia of the right lower extremity.

KEY WORDS: aortoduodenal fistula, gastrointestinal bleeding, duodenum, aortofemoral bypass grafting, abdominal aorta, axilloprofundal bypass, synthetic graft.
