Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate our early experience with the Corvita endoluminal graft for the treatment of a variety of arterial injuries. Ten patients with arterial pseudoaneurysms (8) or arteriovenous fistulas (2) due to arterial injuries were followed prospectively after undergoing treatment with the endovascular graft. Our results showed that the Corvita low-profile endoluminal graft can be successfully used to treat arterial injuries but that it sometimes requires the placement of additional stents in patients with tortuous or tapering vessels. These grafts are extremely useful for the safe treatment of difficult and high-risk patients. Further improvements in available endovascular grafts and good long-term results will be necessary before considering these grafts the best treatment available for most patients with significant arterial injuries.
