Exercise-induced arterial endofibrosis (EIAE) is now a 20-year-old concept. Initially observed in highly trained cyclists, it has been found in many other male and female endurance athletes. Most stenoses are located on the first centimetres of the external iliac artery but other localisation may be found. The disease is defined by specific histological findings showing fibrosis of the intimal and medial wall of the artery. Ankle pressure measurement plays a key role in the diagnosis of EIAE… Expand
Arterial endofibrosis in endurance athletes: angiographic features and classification.
TLDR
Arterial endofibrosis mainly affects the central part of the iliac artery and the lateral circumflex femoral artery, and the CIA, EIA, and femoral lesion classification may help to distinguish patterns of associated lesions. Expand
Middle-Aged Female Long-Distance Runner
Exercise-induced iliac artery endofibrosis is a recently described abnormality of the external iliac artery that typically affects younger, healthy endurance athletes. Characteristic of the initiallyExpand
Arterial endofibrosis in endurance athletes: Prospective comparison of the diagnostic accuracy of intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography and computed tomography angiography.
TLDR
CTA shows performances similar to those of DSA in predicting the long-term diagnosis of endofibrosis in endurance athletes with suggestive symptoms, and was good for all readers for the overall diagnosis ofEnd ofibrosis. Expand
Endofibrosis of the external iliac artery.
TLDR
History reveals worsening stress induced claudication during his sports activities since several years, which leads to acute clinical presentation of lumbalgia and ischiatiform pain at his left leg. Expand
Simultaneous arterial pressure recordings improve the detection of endofibrosis.
TLDR
Delta ASBP and/or Delta ABI calculated from simultaneous pressure measurements should be recommended when searching for unilateral EIAE. Expand
Bilateral Common Iliac Artery Endofibrosis in a Recreational Cyclist: Case Report and Review of the Literature.
TLDR
A unique case of a patient who was not a professional or high-endurance cyclist who appeared to be bilateral in the common iliac arteries and were not limited to the external iliAC artery as most commonly described. Expand

TLDR
Iliac artery compression should be recognised as an important differential diagnosis in competitive cyclist presenting with lower limb symptoms and early diagnosis may reduce unnecessary investigations, and enable the cyclist to make appropriate adjustments and decisions in treatment management. Expand
Imaging evaluation of flow limitations in the iliac arteries in endurance athletes: diagnosis and treatment follow-up.
TLDR
The role of imaging plays an important role in the assessment of the underlying lesion and its location as well as in posttreatment follow-up of patients with sport-related flow limitations in the iliac arteries. Expand
Results of external iliac artery reconstruction in avid cyclists.
TLDR
External iliac arteriopathy is a disease of prolonged, sustained, and repetitive trauma and patch angioplasty yields a low rate of reoperation, more satisfied patients, return to competitive activity, and improvement in postexercise ankle-brachial indices. Expand
A Rare Case of Periadventitial Fibromuscular Dysplasia in External Iliac Artery: A Short Report
TLDR
A histologically proven case of periadventitial FMD of the iliac artery in a young cyclist, which was treated successfully with surgery, is reported. Expand

TLDR
Invasive investigations (arteriography or an gioscopy) will confirm the diagnosis before surgery is discussed, and long-term results in endofibrosis are unknown, most of the surgically treated patients return to competition. Expand
Endofibrosis of the external iliac artery in bicycle racers: an unrecognized pathological state.
TLDR
Under certain predisposing anatomic conditions, abnormal hemodynamics, probably due to a high flow arterial state and an aerodynamic position on the bicycle, provoke repeated trauma which eventually produces the lesion. Expand
External iliac artery endofibrosis: a 40-year course.
TLDR
The results of this isolated original report suggest, as it intuitively presumed, that the lesions may stabilise when intensive training is stopped, and when no symptoms are noted on usual daily activity or submaximal exercise, surgery should not be performed. Expand
Detection and treatment of claudication due to functional iliac obstruction in top endurance athletes: a prospective study
TLDR
A sports-specific protocol is effective in detecting kinking of the iliac arteries as a cause for flow restriction in athletes who have few intravascular abnormalities when investigated with conventional vascular diagnostic tools. Expand

TLDR
A 42-year-old man was consulted because of a pain in his left leg and the echo-Doppler and arteriography evidenced a stenosis, probably due to endofibrosis of the external iliac artery, and normal aspect of the other arteries. Expand
Flow limitations in the iliac arteries in endurance athletes. Current knowledge and directions for the future.
TLDR
Pain and powerless feeling in the leg during cycling may indicate a serious problem that limits the performance in cyclists, and available diagnostic techniques are proven to be inadequate for this specific lesion, which has characteristics other than those of atherosclerotic lesions. Expand

TLDR
AAI and leg pressures response to maximal exercise is a valid and noninvasive method for the evaluation of external iliac endofibrosis in cyclists. Expand
Dissection of the external iliac artery in highly trained athletes.
TLDR
Highly trained athletes over the age of 40 are susceptible to external iliac artery dissection, and successful treatment has been achieved by surgical, endovascular, and conservative therapies. Expand

TLDR
The patient was treated surgically, he underwent remodeling of his left external iliac artery with venous angioplasty, and the patient return to training after three months. Expand

TLDR
A 37-year old sportsman with no cardiovascular risk factors, cycling up to 50-100 km at least five times a week for more than 20 years, fell over his bike during training and the handle bar hit him in the left iliac fossa and he developed severe pain in the thigh after walking or cycling 100 m.
