Abstract

Introduction: Due to their anatomic location, internal iliac artery aneurysms are difficult to treat surgically. An endovascular approach can be helpful, even in ruptured cases. Report: We report a 71-year-old male with ruptured isolated bilateral internal iliac artery aneurysms. The aneurysms were treated with embolisation of the branching arteries of the bilateral internal iliac arteries followed by placement of a stent graft covering the orifice of the bilateral internal iliac arteries. The patient tolerated this procedure well. Discussion: Even in patients with ruptured aneurysms, endovascular treatment for internal iliac artery aneurysms can be a good treatment option.© 2012 European Society for Vascular Surgery.
