Aortoiliac Endarterectomy as a Viable Alternative for Revascularization in a Woman With Isolated Aortoiliac Disease and an Anomalous Right Pelvic Kidney
Journal of Vascular Surgery Cases and Innovative Techniques
Although the use of aortoiliac endarterectomy to treat occlusive disease has declined since the advent of endovascular procedures and operative bypass grafting techniques, clinical scenarios still exist in which it can be useful. We present the case of a patient with right lower extremity pain at rest, an anomalous right pelvic kidney, right common iliac artery occlusion, and severe left common iliac artery stenosis. We have demonstrated that aortoiliac endarterectomy should not be considered an outdated surgical technique but a viable alternative for revascularization in a specific subset of patients.
