Abstract

We report the case of a 78-year-old man with coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic renal insufficiency with an enlarging 6.7-cm infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. He also had a 4-cm right common iliac artery aneurysm, and right external iliac artery occlusion. The patient had a history of an axillobifemoral bypass graft placed 10 years prior for aortoiliac occlusive disease. We describe the use of an infrarenal aorto-uni-iliac graft and subsequent intentional graft occlusion as an endovascular solution to treat aneurysmal disease in this sick patient. He remains asymptomatic after surgery, with demonstrated occlusion of his aneurysms.
