Abstract

Fenestrated endovascular aortic repair has been used with increasing frequency to treat complex aortic aneurysms. The Zenith fenestrated stent graft system (Cook Medical Inc, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) was approved for commercial use in the United States in April 2012, offering a custom-made design with up to three fenestrations to treat short-neck infrarenal and juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. This report and the Video presentation (online only) summarize the preoperative planning, stent graft design, and technique of implantation of a Zenith fenestrated stent graft using a totally percutaneous approach in an 80-year-old female patient with a 6-cm juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. The patient was dismissed home the next day without complications, and a computed tomography angiography at 12 months showed no endoleak or stent graft complications.
