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.
