1.  A novel approach to the management of a ruptured Type II endoleak following endovascular repair of an internal iliac artery aneurysm 
The British Journal of Radiology  2011;84(1008):e240-e242.
Endovascular repair of isolated iliac artery aneurysms is an established safe and effective management option. Type II endoleak is a potential complication, but rarely results in significant morbidity or mortality. We report a case of a patient who presented with a ruptured internal iliac artery aneurysm secondary to a Type II endoleak. To our knowledge this and the following method of managing this have not been previously reported. Established methods of managing endoleaks, such as intravascular transfemoral embolisation and open or laparoscopic ligation, were not possible. Therefore, we resorted to a novel approach to this type of aneurysm and successfully performed a transcutaneous direct puncture and embolisation of the superior gluteal artery.
