Vascular Disease primarily affecting the first branch point of arteries going to the legs.
Ballooning of the artery. Once it reaches a certain size threshold repair is recommended to prevent rupture.
Blockage of these arteries can lead to impotence (loss of sexual function in men), thigh and buttock pain with walking and rarely nonhealing wounds or amputation.
Cyclist’s Iliac Syndrome
A rare disease process where chronic repetitive movements such as cycling or cross-country skiing can result in scar tissue build-up in the iliac arteries. This results in progressive deterioration in performance and can eventually lead to arterial occlusion with pain when walking and at rest.
