Currently, there are a variety of open surgical, endovascular, and hybrid options to treat iliac artery aneurysms (IAA). Anatomy of the common iliac artery (CIA) with regard to proximal and distal neck, involvement of the iliac bifurcation, and choice to preserve the ipsilateral internal iliac artery (IIA) all play a role in the decision process towards the preferred treatment method. This manuscript describes the available open surgical and endovascular techniques for the treatment of IAA. Indications, advantages and limitations, and outcomes of each technique are discussed.
