Large hypogastric ostium aneurysm embolization with Interlock™-18
A 77 year old male patient presented with a large aneurysm located in the ostium of the hypogastric artery, diagnosed during CT control.
The angiographic control confirmed a saccular aneurysm, hemodinamically instable.
Using a Direxion™ Bern tip 155 cm microcatheter preloaded with Fathom-16™ guidewire we were able to engage the hypogastric artery directly from the iliac artery and place the tip inside the aneurysm.
The sac angiographic evaluation confirmed the saccular anatomy and showed a big vessel feeding the gluteus.
