PURPOSE: To report profitable endovascular therapy of a beforehand implanted balloon-expandable stent bursting fracture with concomitant massive pseudoaneurysm formation within the left frequent iliac artery (LCIA).
CASE REPORT: A 72-year-old man had been beforehand handled with balloon-expandable stents for extreme stenotic lesion within the LCIA and left exterior iliac artery. Seven years later, the affected person complained ache in each decrease legs and again. Angiography demonstrated a three.5-cm-sized pseudoaneurysm within the LCIA with embedded metallic fragments across the lesion. An endovascular therapy was chosen utilizing a limb extension graft for endovascular aortic aneurysm restore. The system was efficiently deployed, and no endoleak was noticed. At 1-month follow-up, computed tomography scan confirmed patency of the implanted stent graft units within the LCIA and the absence of any endoleak.
CONCLUSION: Endovascular strategy utilizing a limb extension graft stent for endovascular aortic aneurysm restore can be utilized for treating stent fracture-related pseudoaneurysm within the frequent iliac artery.
