This video depicts the resection of a distal superior mesenteric artery mycotic aneurysm in a 43 year-old man who also presented with a cardiac valvular lesion. After a short course of antibiotics and resection of the cardiac pathology, the procedure was carried out with laparoscopic mobilization. The mesentery was divided distal to the aneurysm with a bipolar sealing device and the resection margins were confirmed with fluorescence perfusion imaging. Final pathology confirmed a sterile aneurysm.
