Background: Treatment for extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) includes endovascular interventions, hybrid procedures and surgical reconstruction. This study evaluated the short-term outcomes of endovascular and hybrid procedures in patients with Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC-II) D AIOD lesions. Materials and Methods: From January 2013 to June 2015, 41 patients with TASC-II D AIOD lesions who underwent revascularization at our institute were retrospectively included. Nineteen underwent endovascular procedures and 22 underwent hybrid procedures with a postoperative surveillance program for at least 1 year. Patient demographics and short-term outcomes were analyzed. Results: The procedural success rate in all patients was 100%. The accumulative postoperative complication rate was 20.2%, and the major complication was acute kidney injury (14.6%). The time of freedom from target lesion revascularization was 18.9 months. The primary patency rates in the endovascular group were 89.5% and 84.2% at 1 and 2 years, respectively, compared to 95.5% at 1 and 2 years in the hybrid group; however, the difference was not significant (p = 0.234). The secondary patency rates were 94.7% and 93% at 1 and 2 years, respectively, in the endovascular group, and 95.5% and 94% at 1 and 2 years, respectively, in the hybrid group; however, the differences was not significant (p = 0.916). Conclusions: Our study revealed that endovascular and hybrid procedures are favorable treatment choices for patients with TASC-II D AIOD lesions. In patients with multilevel steno-occlusive lesions, hybrid procedures improved distal runoff flow and reduced the complexity of endovascular procedures.
