Serious anatomical limitations to endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) are mostly related to the anatomical characteristics of the proximal neck of the aneurysm. A 75-year-old male was referred for management of an incidentally found large asymptomatic infra-renal saccular abdominal aortic aneurysm. Its proximal aortic neck was short and severely angulated. We performed successful EVAR in this patient without surgical intervention.
