For a long time, open surgical repair has been considered the preferred management option for the exclusion of isolated iliac artery aneurysms.The development of transluminally placed endovascular stent grafts, which have been studied extensively for aneurysm exclusion in the abdominal and thoracic aorta, provided a less invasive approach for exclusion of iliac artery aneurysms as compared with surgical reconstruction or open surgical graft placement.Here we report a case of concomitant bilateral common and internal iliac artery aneurysms excluded successfully with multiple stent-grafting deployment with extension to the external iliac arteries and without coil embolization requirements.
