AUN, Ricardo; SALITURE NETO, Fernando Tavares; LEDERMAN, Alex  and  WAKSMAN, Hilton. Endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic anastomotic aneurysms: report of two cases. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2006, vol.5, n.1, pp.58-62. ISSN 1677-5449.

Proximal anastomosis aneurysm is a rare and severe complication in aortofemoral bypass surgery. Surgical treatment is complex and has a high morbidity and mortality rate. We report two cases of proximal anastomosis aneurysm in late follow up of aortobifemoral bypass surgery, which occurred 15 and 18 years, respectively, after the bypasses and were repaired by the endovascular technique. Both patients progressed well and were submitted to 6- and 12-month follow-up CT scans showing aneurysm exclusion.

Keywords : Pseudoaneurysm; endovascular treatment.
