Background. This article described a 7-year experience with endovascular graft for the tratment of aortoiliac aneurysms and other arterial lesions.
Methods. Four hundred and seventy-two grafts of various types have been placed in 283 patients.
Results. Short and mid-term results in these patients suggest that endovascular grafts may provide better treatment for central artery injuries and some iliac and aortoiliac aneurysms, particularly in high-risk patients and those with previous aortoiliac surgery.
Conclusions. In other circumstance, long-term evaluation will be required to determine the effectiveness and limitations of these endovascular grafts.
