The management of a 79-year-old man presenting with a ruptured common iliac aneurysm is described. The patient had multiple medical problems including hypertension, ischaemic heart disease, and atrial fibrillation, as well as a left hemispheric stroke 5 years previously. Traditional open surgery was judged unsuitable in this case because of the predicted poor outcome. The patient was subsequently treated successfully with endoluminal stent grafting.
Key words: Aneurysm, ruptured; Aortic aneurysm, abdominal; Iliac aneurysm; Stents
