The article presents the experience of endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic atherosclerotic lesions using different types of stents, performed in the Central Military Clinical Hospital named after A.A.Vishnevskogo.

Materials and methods: nine patients underwent 11 operations - stenting of aorta. Direct stenting of terminal aorta was performed in 5 patients, 4 - bifurcation stenting of aorta and both iliac arteries. Endovascular surgery combined with the "open" reconstruction of arteries below the inguinal ligament (hybrid operation) were performed in 2 cases.

Results: technical perioperative success of interventions with the restoration of the aortic lumen was achieved in all cases. Our experience in endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic lesions of the abdominal aorta, allows to characterize this surgical intervention as a highly effective and low-impact.
