Application of the "chimney" stent technique is described in a case of complex multilevel atherosclerotic disease involving the juxtarenal aorta. A patient with significant comorbidities was unsuitable for major open reconstructive surgery. He was treated with a combined procedure consisting of chimney stent placement in the juxtarenal aorta, iliac "kissing" stent placement, and right-sided common femoral artery (CFA) replacement. This case shows that the chimney stent technique can be a feasible alternative to leaving a safety wire in the renal arteries and observation during primary angioplasty in complex atherosclerotic lesions of the abdominal aorta.
