Aortoiliac Disease: Example Case

Clinical Case


A 48 year old man presented with bilateral leg and buttock pain on walking less that 50 metres, ceasing almost immediately on resting.  He had difficulty in achieving an erection over the preceding 12 months. 


He had no palpable pulses in either leg.  A duplex ultrasound scan demonstrated significant aortoiliac disease (See figure 1). 


After appropriate counselling he elected to undergo a Covered Endovascular Reconstruction of his Aortic Bifurcation (CERAB, See figures 2a, 2b & 3). 


He returned to full activity within 4 weeks of discharge and is now able to walk any given distance.  His impotence has resolved.
