When operating on abdominal aortic aneurysms associated with stenoses or occlusions of iliac vessels, surgeons may face the problem of reestablishing circulation to pelvic or gluteal territories. A new technique consists of anastomosing a posterior opening in the body or one of the branches of a bifurcated graft, distally sutured to the femoral artery, to the distal aortic stump, which contains all the patent vessels arising from the end of the aorta, such as inferior mesenteric and lumbar arteries. This technique, successfully performed in two cases, has the advantages of avoiding closure of the distal aortic stump and a possible backflow leak and of ensuring adequate pelvic circulation.
