OBJECTIVES This study evaluated early and long-term results of endovascular treatment of iliac artery occlusions and compared these outcomes with those in patients treated for stenotic lesions. METHODS During a 10-year period ending in January 2010, 223 endovascular procedures to treat aortoiliac occlusive disease (PAD) were performed. All patients were(More)
We report the case of a patient previously treated with an iliac branch endograft for isolated iliac artery aneurysm who developed, more than 2 years later, a type B aortic dissection resulting in the acute expansion of the previously excluded iliac aneurysm. Successful endovascular salvage is described.
BACKGROUND To retrospectively analyze early and follow-up results of endovascular management of visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) in a single-center experience. METHODS From 2007 to June 2013, 26 consecutive elective endovascular interventions for VAAs were performed in 26 patients; preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative data were prospectively(More)
BACKGROUND Only anecdotal cases concerning primary stenting of thrombosed popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) without a preoperative intra-arterial thrombolysis are reported. We report our series of 6 patients treated with this technique. METHODS Six male patients, aged between 63 and 88, came to our attention in the last 10 years for acute limb ischemia due(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively analyze early and midterm results of endovascular infrainguinal peripheral revascularizations in female patients in our single-center experience, paying particular attention to clinical, anatomic, and technical factors affecting perioperative and follow-up outcomes.

Popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) represent the most common peripheral arterial aneurysm and are a significant cause of patient morbidity and limb loss. Complications of PAA include distal embolisation, thrombosis and, rarely, rupture. Whereas open surgical repair remains the gold standard, endovascular exclusion has been demonstrated to be a valid(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this report was to analyse early and mid-term outcomes of endovascular treatment (endovascular aneurysm repair, EVAR) for aorto-iliac aneurysms with the use of an iliac branch device (IBD). REPORT A total of 85 EVAR procedures with IBD were electively carried out in 81 patients between September 2007 and August 2012. Technical(More)
In the period ranging from 2006 to 2010, 5 endovascular interventions for carotid pseudoaneurysm (4 post-carotid endarterectomy [post-CEA] and 1 posttraumatic), without signs of infection, were carried out. All patients were neurologically asymptomatic. A covered stent was used in 4 cases. The fifth patient, undergoing a third endovascular procedure after a(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To compare early and long term results of open and endovascular treatment of post-carotid endarterectomy (CEA) restenosis in a single centre experience. METHODS From January 2005 to December 2011, ninety-nine consecutive interventions for primary severe post-CEA restenosis were performed: in 41 cases (41%, Group 1) open repair was carried(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare early and late results of aortobifemoral bypass and endovascular recanalization with the kissing stent technique in the management of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC II) C and D lesions in the aortoiliac district in a multicenter study. METHODS From January 2006 to December(More)
