Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for abdominal aortic aneurismal disease has increasingly gained widespread application. Aneurysm extends into at least one of the iliac arteries in approximately 20%-30% of patients. The presence of an internal iliac artery aneurysm is one of the most important issues that may dictate a modified approach in EVAR. Herein, we aimed to emphasize the interventional skills that surgeons should have in daily practice in a patient who had abdominal aortic aneurysm concomitantly with an internal iliac artery aneurysm. Coil embolization was performed for the internal iliac artery aneurysm.
