Abstract

Endovascular aneurysm repair continues to become increasingly popular. As the number of implanted endografts increases, complications will increase as well. We report a new approach to endovascular treatment in two patients with acute iliac limb occlusions of a bifurcated aortic endograft with an endoskeleton. Neither patient required femoral-femoral bypass grafting because of unilateral limb ischemia. We believe this is the optimal primary approach in patients with a bifurcated stent graft with an endoskeleton.
