Use of expanded polytetrafluoroethylen (ePTFE) stent graft in autogenic AV fistula with false aneurysm in lower extremity.

Sieroń D, Wiggermann P, Knap D, Wawrzynek W, Stroszczynski C - Pol J Radiol (2012)

Bottom Line: The patient was treated within the angiography suite using a 8/25 mm (8 mm diameter/25 mm length) peripheral graft with expanded polytetrafluoroethylen ePTFE stent.After stent deployment, the dilatation was performed using 8/20 mm (8 mm diameter/20 mm length) balloons.The outcome of US Doppler imaging also confirmed successful intervention.

ABSTRACT
A 28-year-old German-Caucasian man arrived with deep vein thrombosis DVT, pain, oedema and rubor of right lower limb and drug abuse. The US Doppler imaging showed an autogenic AV fistula and false aneurysm of the right superficial femoral artery and femoral vein. The CT imaging showed additional closing of the left external iliac artery and common femoral artery, and of the distal and middle parts of the superficial femoral artery. The patient was treated within the angiography suite using a 8/25 mm (8 mm diameter/25 mm length) peripheral graft with expanded polytetrafluoroethylen ePTFE stent. After stent deployment, the dilatation was performed using 8/20 mm (8 mm diameter/20 mm length) balloons. After intervention, the digital subtraction angiography showed a good stent position with complete exclusion of false aneurysm and AV fistula. The outcome of US Doppler imaging also confirmed successful intervention.

Mentions: We performed control angiography, which revealed a small leak in the pseudoaneurysm area (Figure 4). We used a 8/20 mm balloon (8 mm in diameter and 20 mm in length) for leak closure. Control DSA following balloon stent graft dilatation showed good SFA perfusion and no leak (Figure 5). Due to a large diameter of the sheath and high risk of complications [4], closing of the site of puncture and sheath insertion was performed in the operation room.
