Resumen

MARIN, Juan et al. Endovascular therapy in peripheral vascular trauma: Initial experience. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2016, vol.68, n.4, pp.310-315. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2015.12.005.

Objectives To show our initial experience in endovascular management of peripheral artery trauma. Materials and methods We retrospectively collected the data of seven cases of vascular trauma: two tibial artery pseudoaneurysms, one case of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) associated to iliac vessel pseudoaneurysm, one giant pseudoaneurysm of the popliteal artery, a popliteal vessel AVF, an acute occlusion of the popliteal artery due to blunt trauma and a case of iatrogenic lesion of the subclavian artery with pseudoaneurysm resulting from a central intra-arterial catheter. Coil embolization was performed in both cases of tibial artery pseudoaneurysms. The case of iliac vessel pseudoaneurysm and AVF was treated with a stent graft. A covered stent was used to exclude both the popliteal pseudoaneurysm and popliteal vessel AVF. A bare stent was used in the case of acute popliteal occlusion. The intra-arterial central catheter in the subclavian artery was managed by means of compression with an angioplasty balloon. Results All patients were successfully treated with no immediate complications. Follow up ranges from 3 months to 3 years with no evidence of complication up to this point. Discussion Although the classic approach to vascular trauma treatment is still very much an alternative, endovascular therapy, through all of its tools, allows either definitive treatment or transient management, improving local conditions and thus to proceed at a later date with an elective open vascular repair with fewer difficulties and complications.
