Endovascular management of
spontaneous axillary artery aneurysm: a case report and review of the
Spontaneous atraumatic true
axillary artery aneurysm is a relatively unusual disorder. Although most cases
are asymptomatic, complications of axillary artery aneurysms may result in
acute vascular insufficiency and neurological deficits. Prompt treatment,
therefore, should be employed in the management of this condition. To date, the
standard treatment for peripheral aneurysms is still surgical resection with
end-to-end anastomosis. However, aneurysmectomy and interposition grafting with
autologous or artificial vessels are more invasive and time-consuming. The
ideal treatment for axillary artery aneurysm should be relatively noninvasive,
safe and free of significant complications, cost-effective, cosmetically
acceptable, and incur less absence from usual daily activities. Endovascular
stent grafts have also been successfully used to treat these aneurysms.
Management of select aneurysms using stent grafts has become more prevalent with
the developing endoluminal technology.
We report a case of a spontaneous
atraumatic axillary artery aneurysm where the patient was a 48-year-old ethnic
Han Chinese woman with a gradually enlarging left axillary pulsatile mass. She
was treated with endovascular stent grafts. The postoperative course of the
patient was uneventful during the six-month follow-up.
We show that there are significant
early advantages with the endovascular management technique versus the
conventional operation in the management of axillary artery aneurysm.
