BACKGROUND: The CARIBE Study aims to assess the outcome of endovascular repair (EVAR) with iliac branch endoprosthesis (IBE) in patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms extending to iliac bifurcation, comparing these results with those of EVAR with hypogastric occlusion present in the recent published literature.
METHODS: Patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms anatomically suitable for EVAR with IBE, are included in the study.
RESULTS: Primary safety outcome measure are total and aneurysm related death free survival. Efficacy endpoints include: iliac branch patency, aneurysmal sac exclusion and freedom from reinterventions or conversion to open repair. Patient reported outcomes are evaluated with Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ), International Index of Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5) and quality of life Euro-Qual EQ-5D Questionnaire.
CONCLUSIONS: Comparison with recent hystorical literature obtained in patients with EVAR with HA occlusion will offer data useful for correct information of patients affected by aorto-iliac aneurysms.
