Internal iliac revascularization during aortic aneurysm replacement: a review and description of a useful technique

Am Surg. 1997 Nov;63(11):970-4.


The coexistence of infrarenal aortic aneurysm and internal iliac artery aneurysm may represent a management problem with regard to preservation of the pelvic blood supply. In this article, we review the methods available for maintaining the pelvic blood flow and describe a useful technique that we have successfully utilized in seven patients to preserve the hypogastric artery blood flow.
