Abstract

Geriatric population is the fastest growing age group in the United States. Traditionally, high risk procedures are not offered to elderly, high risk patients. With increasing number of aging patients and evolution of endovascular technology, more and more minimally invasive procedures are being offered to geriatric patients. Transfemoral aortic valve repair and endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms have been successfully performed in patients above 90 years of age. We describe a unique case of a nonagenarian, who presented with severe aortic stenosis and a large, infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. She underwent a successful combined endovascular repair of both these pathologies at the same time. This case highlights the feasibility of combined procedures in select group of nonagenarians.
