Abstract

In some cases the iliac artery occlusive disease cannot be approached through standard access. The preferred access sites are the ipsilateral retrograde femoral and the contralateral antegrade cross-over, although occasionally these approaches do not allow an effective engagement of the lesion, especially when there is a total occlusion or complex aortoiliac lesion. We are reporting a case of iliac artery stenting through brachial approach.This technique is safe and effective. It provides enough support for stiff balloon or stent catheter to be advanced through this long sheath.
