One of the predominant methods for preserving the internal iliac artery (IIA) in aortoiliac aneurysms is to use an iliac bifurcated device (IBD). However, there are a few limitations to the use of IBD in Korea. Our study aims to present the technical aspects of these devices, and to provide a mid-term analysis of IBD. Since 2013, 4 IBDs were used in 4 patients, with a mean follow-up of 14 months (range, 6-22 months). A 100% technical success rate was achieved without mortality and morbidity in our cases. The mean procedural time was 176 min (range, 145-240 min), and the mean contrast dose used was 184 mL (range, 135-220 mL). Type I or III endoleaks and postoperative expansion of the aneurysms weren't observed. Our cases demonstrates that IBD is a relatively safe repair method of aortoiliac aneurysms with preservation of the IIAs. However, a longer follow-up is needed to review the midterm results.
