The authors report two cases of stent-assisted embolization (SAE) in the aorta. In one case, SAE was performed for treatment of a pseudoaneurysm; the procedure consisted of stent placement and embolization with an AMPLATZER Vascular Plug and detachable coils through the stent struts. In the second case, SAE was performed to stop acute bleeding from an aortoureteral fistula. Before SAE in this case, the aortic bifurcation was reconstructed with self-expandable and balloon-expandable stents. SAE was technically successful in both cases. SAE for aortic pathologic processes may be useful in selected cases as an alternative to surgery or endovascular stent-graft therapy.
