An 83-year-old man with a large internal iliac artery aneurysm (IIAA) was treated with the use of stent-graft, suggesting successful results at 3, 6, and 12 months after treatment. However, 24-month follow-up computed tomography showed minor peripheral opacification of the IIAA. The patient underwent surgical endoaneurysmorrhaphy. No previous report of long-term recanalization of a satisfactorily thrombosed iliac artery aneurysm at 2 years or more after stent-grafting has been previously reported. Further follow-up studies need to be performed on the present procedure before anyone can confidently recommend it in regard to its long-term safety.
