Abstract

Prolonged endovascular procedures requiring a large diameter sheath in each groin can be associated with significant intraoperative lower limb ischemia, particularly in those with pre-existing peripheral vascular disease. We report the case of a patient who suffered severe ischemia-reperfusion injury following endovascular repair of a pararenal aortic aneurysm using a fenestrated stent graft and describe the use of temporary axillobifemoral bypass in a patient with similar comorbidities undergoing the same procedure. We propose this adjunctive technique as a means of maintaining antegrade limb perfusion and avoiding the peripheral and central metabolic consequences of ischemia-reperfusion injury.
