Combined abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and iliac artery aneurysm (IAA) is a common condition. The recently approved Cardiatis Multilayer stent (Cardiatis, Isnes, Belgium) is an innovative stent system for peripheral aneurysm management that has been applied in several clinical cases. After deployment, the unique stent design reduces mean velocity and vorticity within the aneurysm sac, causing thrombus formation and thus exclusion of the aneurysm while the vessels branching from the aneurysm remain patent. We describe a case of combined AAA and IAA with successful endovascular aneurysm repair of the AAA and treatment of the internal iliac artery with the Cardiatis Multilayer stent at 12 months of follow-up.
