|Intervention model||single group assignment|
Time to complete each stapled anastomosis.
Post-operative follow up:
no fistula or hematoma at the anastomotic sites
Male or female participants from 21 years up to 85 years old.
- Patient age is between 21 to 85 years old.
- Patient is diagnosed with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) or -aorto-Iliac/Femoral Occlusive Arterial Disease (Leriche' syndrome) by CT-Angio examination and/or angiography examination in patients with Leriche' syndrome.
