Abstract

This report presents the case of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), in which the aortic neck was severely angulated. Furthermore, there was moderate stenosis and a severe angle with calcification of the suprarenal aorta. EVAR was performed with a commercial Zenith stent-graft, with a slight modification, because an open aneurysm repair was risky in general condition. No complications occurred during the follow-up period.
