Endovascular treatment of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus D aortoiliac occlusive disease using unibody bifurcated endografts

Endovascular treatment of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus D aortoiliac occlusive disease using unibody bifurcated endografts

Journal of Vascular Surgery 65(2): 398-405

Label="OBJECTIVE">Aortobifemoral bypass has been the gold standard treatment for extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease. Endovascular therapy and stenting of aortic and iliac occlusive lesions has proven to be efficacious, especially when dealing with short segment lesions. Endovascular treatment of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC) D aortoiliac occlusive lesions remains a challenge, but a valuable treatment option in poor surgical candidates. We present our operative technique and midterm results in treating TASC D aortoiliac occlusive disease using unibody bifurcated endografts.Label="METHODS">We performed a retrospective review of patients with TASC D aortoiliac occlusive disease who underwent transfemoral endovascular revascularization with the Endologix Powerlink unibody bifurcated endograft (Endologix, Irvine, Calif). Demographic data, operative details, and outcomes were collected. Paired t-tests were performed to compare preoperative and postoperative ankle brachial indexes.Label="RESULTS">Between March 2009 and July 2011, 10 high-risk patients (8 male and 2 female) for a traditional aortobifemoral bypass were treated using this endovascular technique. The mean age was 59 ± 6 years (range, 50-69 years). All patients presented with rest pain, and four with tissue loss. Technical success was 100%, with two patients requiring brachial access and eight patients requiring additional stent placement. Postoperatively, all patients reported clinical improvement with resolution of ischemic symptoms. Mean improvement ankle brachial index was 0.50 ± 0.08 (P = .028) and 0.50 ± 0.01 (P = .034) in the left and right legs, respectively. Mean follow-up time was 40 ± 24 months (range, 4-81 months). The primary and secondary patency rates were 80% and 100%, respectively. Complications requiring early reintervention occurred in two patients and included one expanding hematoma from the percutaneous access site and one acute iliac artery thrombosis. Additionally, one patient underwent repeat angioplasty/stenting for threatened endograft limbs at 4 months. One patient expired during follow-up from an unrelated cardiac cause 19 weeks postoperatively.Label="CONCLUSIONS">This series demonstrates that endovascular repair using a unibody bifurcated endograft for TASC D aortoiliac occlusive disease is feasible, effective, and has excellent midterm patency. It should be considered an effective treatment option when the disease process involves the aorta, in particular if the patient is surgically unfit for a traditional aortobifemoral bypass. The unibody configuration preserves the anatomic aortic bifurcation, which is particularly important in patients with peripheral occlusive disease who are deemed to undergo subsequent endovascular interventions.
