Abstract: As a previously unrecognized late graft-related complication, we report a case of spontaneous perigraft hemorrhage, which was evidenced by contrast extravasation on computed tomographic scan seven years after thoracic aortic replacement with a knitted Dacron graft. There was no anastomotic problem or graft tear, and the hematoma seemed to result from transgraft hemorrhage. Inadequate graft healing and use of a knitted graft in the thoracic aorta seem underlying. Surgeons should be aware of this complication and we advocate careful long-term follow-up.
