Abstract

Acute spontaneous and isolated dissection of the iliofemoral artery is an extremely rare entity. Conservative, surgical, and endovascular treatment have been used to treat such cases. To the best of our knowledge we report the first case of using hybrid management to successfully treat isolated external iliac artery dissection extending to the superficial femoral artery. This method could potentially overcome the limitations of endovascular techniques and minimize use of extensive open surgery.
