BACKGROUND: Aneurysmal and occlusive aortoiliac disease can make the process of introducing large delivery catheters for endovascular repair challenging. We describe the case of a patient who could be treated by a bifurcated stent-graft despite having a unilateral external iliac occlusion. METHODS AND RESULTS: From a brachial access, a covered self-expanding stent was deployed antegradely through the distal gate of the stent-graft into the common iliac artery. This technical choice helped to overcome the problem of an external iliac occlusion, so as to maintain an antegrade flow into the internal iliac and avoid the need for an interfemoral bypass. CONCLUSION: Auto-expandable covered stent-graft with a thinner shaft can be used through a brachial access as an iliac extension of a bifurcated aortic endograft. However, a longer follow-up duration and more cases are necessary to warrant the safety and the durability of such an "off-label" endovascular material assemblage.
