Abstract

Open surgical repair of iliac aneurysms has been usually associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The introduction of novel endovascular techniques has expanded the currently available options to treat these aneurysms. However, the use of endoluminal stent grafts to treat common iliac artery aneurysms by landing their distal end into the hypogastric artery in patients where flow into the latter artery is crucial to avoid end-organ ischemia has only been rarely reported in the past. A case report of a common iliac aneurysm case treated with a novel therapeutic approach, not previously reported is herein presented. Three telescopically-overlapping Hemobahn/Viabahn polvtetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered endoprosthesis (W.L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) were used with success.
