Purpose: To report the endovascular treatment of a spontaneous iliac artery dissection (IAD) involving iliac bifurcation, complicated by a type B intramural aortic hematoma (IMH). Case Report: A 38-year-old female patient came to our institution referring an acute ascending back pain. The angio computed tomography scan showed the presence of a retrograde right IAD with entry tear at the iliac bifurcation and a concomitant aortic IMH. After hypogastric embolization with a vascular plug, self-expanding stent graft was placed to cover the iliac entry tear. At 12 months, the patient was asymptomatic and the angio computed tomography scan showed the patency of the iliac graft without IMH. Conclusions: Endovascular treatment of spontaneous IAD is a safe and effective option in symptomatic patient complicated with type B IMH.

Abstract

Purpose: To report the endovascular treatment of a spontaneous iliac artery dissection (IAD) involving iliac bifurcation, complicated by a type B intramural aortic hematoma (IMH). Case Report: A 38-year-old female patient came to our institution referring an acute ascending back pain. The angio computed tomography scan showed the presence of a retrograde right IAD with entry tear at the iliac bifurcation and a concomitant aortic IMH. After hypogastric embolization with a vascular plug, self-expanding stent graft was placed to cover the iliac entry tear. At 12 months, the patient was asymptomatic and the angio computed tomography scan showed the patency of the iliac graft without IMH. Conclusions: Endovascular treatment of spontaneous IAD is a safe and effective option in symptomatic patient complicated with type B IMH.
