Abstract

The surgical approach for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and coexistent abdominal malignancy remains controversial. We report herein three cases of coincident AAA and early gastric cancer, all of whom were treated by a two-stage operation and underwent curative surgery for their gastric cancer. The principles of our surgical approach are as follows: (1) the lesion which requires urgent surgery should be operated on first, and if both lesions show absolute indications, a one-stage surgical procedure should then be performed; (2) a two-stage surgical procedure in which aneurysmectomy is performed first should be undertaken when no absolute indications for urgent surgery exist for either lesion; (3) a one-stage surgical procedure should only be performed when surgery on one lesion makes the other lesion highly dangerous; and (4) in patients with a poor prognosis because of far advanced cancer in whom the AAA shows no sign of rupturing, only a gastrectomy should be performed.
