Abstract

Due to multiple problems associated with the conventional open surgical therapy for popliteal aneurysms an interventional approach was sought. Ten patients were provided with covered stentgrafts (Hemobahn). Eight of these implantations proved successful in a follow-up control after an average period of 16 months. We observed 2 single occlusions. The reasons for these, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of this method, will be evaluated in the discussion.
