We report the case of a 72-year-old patient presenting with an isolated common iliac aneurysm with occlusion of contralateral common iliac artery and severe kyphoscoliosis. Because of high risk for open surgery due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, this patient was treated with an endovascular approach using an aortomonoiliac stent graft, followed by a femoro-femoral crossover bypass. This report illustrates the usefulness of a minimally invasive approach, and feasibility even for patients with difficult anatomy.

Abstract

We report the case of a 72-year-old patient presenting with an isolated common iliac aneurysm with occlusion of contralateral common iliac artery and severe kyphoscoliosis. Because of high risk for open surgery due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, this patient was treated with an endovascular approach using an aortomonoiliac stent graft, followed by a femoro-femoral crossover bypass. This report illustrates the usefulness of a minimally invasive approach, and feasibility even for patients with difficult anatomy.
