Endovascular treatment (stenting) has evolved as an effective and safe treatment modality for symptomatic subclavian and innominate artery disease. Most of these patients have comorbid conditions associated with atherosclerotic vascular disease, which is responsible for the access site and increased difficulty of procedure. We report a case of symptomatic innominate artery stenosis with concomitant atherosclerotic disease of the abdominal aorta successfully treated with using coronary devices and the pull-through technique via the bilateral brachial approach.
