Abstract

Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms has evolved dramatically within the past few years. This study reports the first successful case in Taiwan area of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm treated with endovascular aortic bifurcational stent-graft. Minimally invasive surgery leading to early recovery, mobilization and shortened hospital day was promising. In addition, there were no local, remote or systemic complications during a 18-month follow-up. Thus, the procedure is an attractive alternative in its potential to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with open surgical repair, especially for patients who are not surgical candidates because of comorbidities. Careful patient selection and more experiences with refined endograft models will elucidate the feasible alternative to conventional surgical repair.
