Embolic aortoiliac occlusion presenting with acute lower limb ischemia is uncommon and represents a challenge for appropriate management. Several techniques for reconstruction are available, taking into account patient's demographics, surgical risk, and aortoiliac anatomy. Several endovascular and open surgical options exist. We present a novel management strategy, with the use of an endovascular aneurysm stent graft for the reconstruction of native aortoiliac system in a middle-aged female. This allowed for successful revascularization of her lower limb ischemia, while maintaining options for future intervention. Long-term data on this option for the management of acute aorto-iliac occlusion are limited.
