Double velour knitted Dacron grafts are currently used for aorto-iliac arterial reconstructions to increase encapsulation and enable rapid intimization of the grafts. Reports of an aneurysm arising in the body of a double velour knitted Dacron graft are rare. We experienced a case of aneurysm arising in the body of an innominate-abdominal aortic bypass graft four years after implantation. Microscopically, this focal aneurysm seemed to be related to a structural defect in the manufacturing process. We wish to stress that patients with implanted commercial Dacron prostheses should be carefully and regularly followed.
