InterGard™ Quadrifurcated [InterVascular S.A. (MAQUET Cardiovascular), La Ciotat, France], a knitted quadrifurcated prosthetic graft, is useful to simplify the procedures for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm concomitant with iliac arterial disease. From March 2008 to April 2010, 59 patients underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair in our department. InterGard™ Quadrifurcated was used in 22 patients (37.3%). All patients were male with a mean age of 72.1 ± 12.1 years (range from 45 to 90 years). Four were emergency cases. Nineteen patients had common iliac arterial lesions, and 19 patients had internal iliac arterial lesions. In addition to abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, reconstruction of bilateral internal iliac arteries was performed in 4 patients, reconstruction of unilateral internal iliac artery in 15 (right 6, left 9), and internal mesenteric artery in 13. There was one hospital death due to nonocclusive mesenteric infarction. There were two complications, which were intestinal perforation and intestinal obstruction. All of these three cases were emergency cases. Computed tomography scan 1 week after operation showed that all reconstructed grafts were patent. Although patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm concomitant with iliac arterial disease had many preoperative comorbidities, surgical results with InterGard™ Quadrifurcated were satisfactory. It is useful to simplify the procedures for these patients.
