Abstract

Isolated iliac artery aneurysms are rare lesions. Prompt diagnosis and timely intervention are essential in their management. In elderly patients with coexisting medical problems, endovascular procedures are preferred to avoid the risks of morbidity and mortality associated with general anesthesia and surgery. We report a case of a true saccular external iliac artery aneurysm that underwent spontaneous thrombosis after treatment with placement of two overlapping bare self-expandable metallic stents only.
