A85-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a right iliac artery anastomotic pseudoaneurysm after aorto-biiliac Y-shaped graft replacement for the treatment of abdominal aortic and biiliac aneurysms. We performed an endovascular intervention of this anastomotic pseudoaneurysm with an ePTFE-covered stent-graft. This method seemed to be very useful even in such a high-risk patient, because it can be done under local anesthesia.
