Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: This report describes our experience with endovascular repair of aortic and iliac anastomotic aneurysms.
METHODS: Between June 1994 and March 1996, 12 noninfected aortic or iliac anastomotic aneurysms in 10 patients who had serious comorbid medical conditions that precluded or made difficult standard operative repair were treated using endovascular grafts. No patient in this study had a history of fever, leukocytosis, or computed tomographic evidence of a periprosthetic fluid collection that was suggestive of infection of the original graft. Endovascular grafts composed of polytetrafluoroethylene and balloon-expandable stents were introduced through a femoral arteriotomy and were placed using over-the-wire techniques under C-arm fluoroscopic guidance.
RESULTS: Endovascular grafts were successfully inserted in all patients with aortic or iliac anastomotic aneurysms. There were no procedure-related deaths, and complications included one postprocedure wound hematoma and one perioperative myocardial infarction. Graft patency has been maintained for a mean of 16.1 months, with no computed tomographic evidence of aneurysmal enlargement or perigraft leakage.
CONCLUSIONS: Endovascular grafts appear to be a safe and effective technique for excluding some noninfected aortoiliac anastomotic aneurysms in high-risk patients and may become a treatment option in all patients who have clinically significant lesions.
