Balloon-expandable intravascular stents were employed to correct atherosclerotic stenosis of the aortic bifurcation. The devices were placed in the proximal iliac arteries with the cephalic end of the stents contacting in the midline. This arrangement provided an adequate lumen for the distal portion of the aortic wall and the proximal iliac arteries. Six of seven patients who received this form of treatment had hemodynamic and clinical improvement of their vascular insuffiency at an average follow-up of 1 year.
