Isolated common iliac artery aneurysms are uncommon, occurring in 0.03% of the population, and are responsible for less than 2% of clinically significant aneurysm disease. However, the incidence of iliac artery aneurysms is much higher in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms, with an incidence close to 40% in this population. The presence of bilateral iliac aneurysms in this population is common. This chapter describes two techniques to manage unilateral or bilateral common iliac artery aneurysms with preservation of the hypogastric artery: use of an Endologix AFX stent graft with snorkel placement and use of two bifurcated Gore Excluder stent grafts.
