JALDIN, Rodrigo Gibin et al. Unfavorable iliac artery anatomy causing access limitations during endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: application of the endoconduit technique. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.4, pp.318-324. ISSN 1677-5449.

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is already considered the first choice treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Several different strategies have been used to address limitations to arterial access caused by unfavorable iliac artery anatomy. The aim of this report is to illustrate the advantages and limitations of each option and present the results of using the internal endoconduit technique and the difficulties involved.

Keywords : aortic aneurysm; endovascular procedures; surgical procedures; minimally invasive; iliac artery; vascular access devices.
