Abstract/OtherAbstract:
At least 10% of patients who undergo bilateral aortofemoral bypass are at risk of needing a reoperation for late prosthetic thrombosis because of reduced outflow as the disease progresses. To prevent occlusion of the prostheses, we performed endovascular surgery with transprosthetic access for distal stenosis. We report our experience of using the Angio-Seal with transprosthetic access after angioplasty in three patients who had undergone bilateral aortofemoral bypass. Hemostasis was achieved in all three patients. There were no complications, such as hemorrhage, hematoma, or prosthetic infection, and all three patients were discharged within 24 h. At the 12-, 15-, and 24-month follow-up, none of the patients had any sign of recurrent claudication. Using the Angio-Seal in bilateral aortofemoral bypass provided the means of treating distal stenosis by endovascular surgery with transprosthetic access. This method is both rapid and safe, and may broaden the indications for the endovascular treatment of distal arteriopathies in patients with vascular prostheses.
