Traditional open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm has disadvantages. We present our experience of transfemoral endoluminal repair with a bifurcated graft system. 29 patients with aortic aneurysm over 5.5 cm in diameter and 1 with a 3.2 cm aneurysm and bilateral iliac stenosis were assessed; 5 were suitable for the procedure. The operation was successful in all the patients, without haemodynamic compromise or major complications. This technique has the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality from abdominal aortic aneurysm. Further modifications are required to make it applicable to most aneurysms.
