The authors present their experience with abdominal aortic aneurysm during the last 12 years. From 1976 up to now they treated 70 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms. Sixty-seven patients (96%) were male, while 3 (4%) female. Mean age was 65 years (S.D. +/- 7.97). 82% of the patients were heavy smokers. Sixty-five patients were treated by means of resection and vascular reconstruction. Their associated pathologies were: M.I. or severe heart ischemia 34 (52.3%), diabetes 13 (20%), hypertension 25 (38.4%), T.I.A. 6 (9.2%), renal insufficiency 13 (20%), and respiratory insufficiency 18 (27.6%). Results demonstrated a 12-year patency rate of 91.8%. Five high-risk patients were treated by means of "palliative" treatment. Associated pathologies and risk factors were: smoking 5 (100%), M.I. or severe heart ischemia 5 (100%), diabetes 2 (40%), hypertension 4 (80%), T.I.A. 2 (40%), renal insufficiency 2 (40%), respiratory insufficiency 3 (60%). Treatment consisted in the sac thrombosis by means of Gianturco-Wallace coils into the aneurysm (2 cases) and iliac artery ligation (3 cases). Both techniques allowed acute thrombosis of the aneurysm. Vascular supply to the lower limbs was performed by means of an axillo-bifemoral reconstruction in all cases. Long-term prognosis of these five patients was poor due to their general condition.
