Up to 40% of abdominal aortic aneurysms have co-existing unilateral or bilateral iliac artery ectasia or aneurysm. These are associated with an increased risk of endoleak, morbidity and mortality following endoluminal repair. To reduce the adverse sequelae of internal iliac artery (IIA) occlusion, various open, endovascular and hybrid measures have been described to maintain perfusion to the pelvis. This review discusses the contemporary management of aorto-iliac aneurysm in the endovascular era with reference to the sequelae of IIA occlusion and the strategies to preserve IIA perfusion. Particular consideration is given to iliac bifurcation devices. © 2008 European Society for Vascular Surgery.
