Gluteal Necrosis and Paraplegia Following Postoperative Bilateral Internal Iliac Artery Occlusion

A Senapati et al. J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino). .

Abstract

Complications associated with occlusion of the internal iliac arteries are seen less commonly than those following occlusion of the external iliac arteries, because the pelvis has a good collateral circulation. This paper describes a case of severe gluteal necrosis, paraplegia and acute renal failure following an aorto-bifemoral bypass, which we believe was caused by bilateral iliac artery and pelvic collateral circulation occlusion.
