Customized endovascular repair of common iliac artery aneurysms


Open technique for elective repair of iliac artery aneurysms can be safely performed with good outcomes but not inconsequential morbidity. An endovascular approach has been shown to have both periprocedural and postoperative advantages with equivalent outcomes. Endovascular repair of common iliac arteries (CIAs) without sacrificing the hypogastric artery using an iliac branch device is a complex endovascular technique requiring a proximal seal zone that may be absent in larger CIA aneurysms. We present two cases in which CIA aneurysms were repaired with a customized endovascular technique using the benefit of the aortic bifurcation for stability in addition to providing a long proximal seal zone with the AFX device (Endologix, Irvine, Calif) paired with the iliac branch device (W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) for internal iliac artery preservation.
