YOSHIDA, Ricardo de Alvarenga et al. Laparoscopic aortoiliac surgery for treatment of limb critical ischemia: report of the first case in Brazil. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.4, pp.364-370. ISSN 1677-5449.

Laparoscopic surgery has been increasingly used as a less invasive surgical option for the treatment of aortoiliac occlusive atherosclerotic disease. The objective of this case report is to describe the results of the first laparoscopic surgery conducted in Brazil for the treatment of the aortoiliac occlusive disease associated with distal hybrid procedures to treat multisegmental atherosclerotic lesions in a patient with critical limb ischemia. The laparoscopic technique is an additional minimally invasive tool, being feasible, safe, and effective for the treatment of extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease. This technique, which is nothing more than a conventional surgery performed under laparoscopic viewing, brings good long-term results associated with technical elegance.
