Material and Methods: In our clinic, between January 2010 - May 2012, endovascular stent graft treatment was applied to 14 patients with aortic abdominal aneurism. 11 patients were male and 3 were female. Ages ranged from 61-80. Our study group consisted of non-specific degenerative aneurism cases, carrying risk if treated surgically. Results: Endovascular interventions were applied to the patients under local anesthesia and made in elective conditions. All processes success rate was 100%. During the process, there were no death, major complications or did not require open surgery. In two patients who underwent the aor- ta bi-iliac stent graft procedure developed complications. One patient developed acute graft thrombosis on postoperative 18th hour, thrombolytic (TPA) was applied and blood flow supplied. Other patient underwent surgery on postoperative 15th day, between the left femoral artery and the right femoral artery cross femoral bypass was made with 7 mm vascular graft. No graft infection or death due to aneurysm rupture was observed. Conclusion: Besides the fact that mortality and morbidity rates in early stage is lower and duration of hospital stay is less and there have advanta- ges of limited anesthesia, due to having a high technical success method, endovascular treatment of aortic aneurismatic lesions in abdominal region by using stent graft become a preferable application. If it is made in appropriate indications that will be less traumatic to the patient and easier to open surgery in terms of physicians and believe that a low-risk method of treatment. In our clinic, checks are still carried out on a regular basis and follow-up patients after discharge. Keywords : Aortic aneurism; endovascular graft; stent graft
