All patients who underwent elective AUI with FFBP for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in this period were included in the study.
A 6 mm or 8 mm standard polyester graft was used for the FFBP.
We treated 33 patients with AUI and FFBP between 2002 and 2010.
One patient developed an occlusion of his FFBP 3 years after the initial procedure, which was subsequently revised.
The initial reports of FFBP were on patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease, and 5-year patency rates were between 35% and 92%.
