Abstract: We present an endovascular approach for anatomic reconstruction of the iliac bifurcation in life-threatening arterioureteral fistula without sacrificing the pelvic arterial vascular supply. Five consecutive patients suffering from acute onset of significant gross hematuria caused by iliac-ureteral fistula resulting from previous oncologic surgery and radiation therapy were treated by transfemoral stent graft implantation in a double-barrel technique. Iliac-ureteral pseudoaneurysm coverage succeeded in an iliac neobifurcation with preservation of pelvic perfusion. Follow-up ranging from 9 to 37 months confirmed cessation of hematuria. One patient experienced stent graft thrombosis of the external iliac artery as a result of large cervical cancer invasion treated by crossover bypass. In all other patients, stent grafts were patent.
