Since May 2010 51 patients with a median age of 69 years were included. Among them there were 32 (89%) men and 4 (11%) women. 28 (78%) patients had infrarenal localization of abdominal aortic aneurysms, 8 (22%) patients had juxtarenal localization of AAA. In 34 patients (94%) abdominal aortic aneurysms were etiologicaly atherosclerotic and in 2 patients (6%) it was Marfan syndrome to be the definite reason for aneurysmatic disease.
The maximum dimensions of the abdominal aorta averaged 59 ± 18mm. All patients had challenging anatomy: short and severely angulated and/or conic proximal aortic neck, unsuitable distal ”landing zone”, thrombus, calcification and complicated morphology, complex aneurysms and dissections of iliac and femoral arteries.
