Abstract

BARRERA, Juan G et al. Treatment of abdominal aorta and iliac arteries with endovascular technique. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.4, pp.228-231. ISSN 0120-5633.

Antecedents: since 1991 endovascular technique has been successfully used in the management of infra-renal aortic aneurysms and it has been improved in such a way that it has quickly turned into an alternative for patients considered having high risk for conventional surgery. Objective: describe the institutional results in the management of abdominal aortic pathologies through endovascular technique from 2003 to 2005. Design-Method: descriptive, longitudinal, retrospective study in which clinical histories of patients that underwent an endovascular procedure of abdominal aorta and iliac arteries were analyzed. The analysis was performed in Stata 8,0 S/E. Results: 9 patients received exclusively treatment for abdominal aortic and iliac lesions. All were male individuals with mean age 68.9 ± 8.1 years. 6 patients had diagnosis of infra-renal aortic aneurysm and the other 3 had anastomotic aneurysms. Requirement of endoprosthesis was evidenced in an average of 1.9 ± 0.8. Femoro-femoral bypass surgery was performed as simultaneous procedure in 4 of the 9 patients. 77.8% of patients had no complications. Mortality due to the procedure was 22% (2 patients) and it is important to notice that only these 2 patients had complications. Conclusions: exclusion of aortic and iliac aneurysms with modular endoprosthesis is being widely implemented as a valid treatment option, with excellent results that avoid the risks of conventional surgery and its associated morbidity.

Keywords : abdominal aortic aneurysm; iliac aneurysm; endoprosthesis; endovascular treatment.
