Canaries hospital treats aneurysm without scalpel:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A Canary Islands hospital is the first in Spain to treat aortic aneurysm with a forked prosthesis, without using a scalpel. The procedure, carried out by a team at the Nuestra Senora del Pino hospital in Las Palmas, involved inserting the grafts by catheter through the femoral artery of a 66-year-old man. The prosthesis was fixed to the aorta wall and one of the iliac arteries. A second prosthesis was then inserted to join the first. A similar procedure was carried out on an 81-year-old man who could not be given a general anaesthetic.
