    The use of an autologous ipsilateral internal iliac artery to restore circulation after excision of a ruptured femoral aneurysm in a patient addicted to drugs is described. Autogenous vein graft was not available. The advantages of using the internal iliac artery in this situation are discussed. The use of internal iliac artery graft in this situation has not been previously described in the literature.

    Acute type A aortic dissection remains one of the most challenging conditions in aortic surgery. Despite the advancements in the field, the mortality rate still remains high. Though there is a general consensus that the ascending aorta should be replaced, the distal extension of the surgery still remains a controversy. Few surgeons argue for a conservative approach to reduce operative and postoperative morbidity while others considering the problems associated with "downstream problems" support an aggressive approach including a frozen elephant trunk. The cohort in the Indian subcontinent and APAC is far different from the western world. Many factors determine the decision for surgery apart from the pathology of the disease. Economy, availability of the suitable prosthesis, the experience of the surgeon, ease of access to the medical facility all contribute to the decision making to treat acute type A dissection.
