PURPOSE: To report the recanalization of an occluded common iliac artery (CIA) to allow endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with a bifurcated stent-graft. CASE REPORT: A 76-year-old man with a 75-mm infrarenal AAA and an occluded right CIA was successfully treated with a Zenith bifurcated stent-graft. The right CIA was recanalized allowing access, delivery, and deployment of the stent-graft. Follow-up computed tomography at 9 months showed no evidence of endoleak; maximum aneurysm diameter was reduced to 72 mm, and the iliac vessels were patent. CONCLUSION: Bifurcated stent-graft repair of an AAA can be performed following recanalization of an occluded CIA. This option may be preferable to an open repair or an aortomonoiliac stent-graft with extra-anatomical bypass in some patients. Long-term surveillance will be necessary to ensure freedom from iliac-related secondary intervention.
