Purpose: Bilateral limb occlusion after Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) is relatively uncommon. The present report illustrates a successful treatment of bilateral ischemia resulted by chronic limb occlusion after EVAR with Rotarex mechanical thrombectomy devices. Case Report: A 67-year-old male complicated with diabetic, hypertension, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), and renal insufficiency disease had undergone EVAR for abdominal aortic aneurysm 10 years ago. At 4 years after the first surgery, the patient experienced pain and fatigue in both lower limbs without further examination for false consideration as a manifestation of CHD. In the last 6 months, the patient’s symptoms have worsened, and Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) confirmed the diagnosis of bilateral limb occlusion. A mechanical thrombectomy for instent restenosis with Rotarex was performed in bilateral iliac limb combined with a bare-metal stent deployment. The patient was followed up for 1 year without any lower ischemic symptoms, and the CTA showed bilateral iliac limb was patent. Conclusion: Rotarex mechanical thrombectomy could be an effective treatment of lower extremity ischemia due to bilateral limb occlusion after EVAR.
