Abstract

Objectives: To determine the incidence of common iliac artery (CIA) aneurysms in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and to evaluate the relationship between AAA and CIA diameter. Methods: Spiral CTangiography was used to measure the maximum diameters of the abdominal aorta and the common iliac arteries of 215 patients with AAA. Results: The medium CIA diameter was 1.7 cm - significantly greater than thepublished mean of 2.25 (2 S.D. = 0.85-1.65) cm of an age-matched, non-vascular population. Thirty-four patients (16%) had unilateral and 26patients (12%) bilateral CIA aneurysms greater than or equal to 2.4 cm diameter. Eight-six vessels (20%) were affected. Right CIA diameterswere wider than left CIA diameters (p<0.0001, Wilcoxon marched-pairs signed rank test). The correlation between AAA size and CIA diameter was weak. Conclusions: The AAA population has abnormally dilated commoniliac arteries. In this population, common iliac artery aneurysms should be defined as those greater that 2.4 cm diameter. 20% of CIAs in patients with AAA are aneurysmal according to this definition.
