Abdominal aortic aneurysms are a common pathology encountered by the interventionalist. Most endovascular repairs are performed with conventional bifurcated devices. However, there are situations in which the use of an aorto-uni-iliac (AUI) device is required because the use of a bifurcated graft is not feasible. Standard indications for use of an AUI include a narrow aortic segment precluding delivery and adequate expansion of a bifurcated graft, unilateral iliac occlusion, tortuosity, severe stenosis, and the presence of iliac aneurysmal disease. Occasionally, an AUI may be used for aortoiliac occlusive disease or as a bailout technique with conventional endografting. This chapter elaborates on the use of two bifurcated stent grafts for creation of an AUI endograft.
