BACKGROUND: Endovascular repair of mycotic aneurysm is an alternative to open repair if the patho-anatomy is suitable. The aortic size above and below the mycotic aneurysm may be small.
METHODS: A retrospective review was made of prospectively collected departmental computerised database.
RESULTS: Three oriental patients with juxta- and infra-renal mycotic aortic aneurysms with a small aortic diameter of 17 mm to 18 mm underwent successful emergency endovascular treatment using Cook(®) Zenith ESLE stentgrafts. These are ancillary devices aimed at iliac extensions usually.
CONCLUSION: This is to our knowledge the first case series of Cook(®) Zenith ESLE iliac component endografts for the treatment of aortic mycotic aneurysms with small aortae, and short- and mid-term results are encouraging.
