Abstract

The Cardiatis multilayer stent (Cardiatis, Isnes, Belgium) is a cobalt, self-expandable bare stent made of two interconnected layers without any covering that allows a pressure decrease and thrombus formation into an aneurysmal sac, while improving laminar flow in the main artery and surrounding vital branches. We report a case of an anastomotic iliac pseudoaneurysm successfully treated with the deployment of a Cardiatis multilayer stent.
