We ­describe a ­patient who devel­oped a false aneu­rysm inter­posed ­between bilat­er­al com­mon iliac arte­ri­al ­stumps 6 years after replace­ment of a bifur­cat­ed graft for ­repair of abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysm. The false aneu­rysm ­formed a fis­tu­la to the con­tra­lat­er­al com­mon iliac ­artery stump. In the light of this ­patient’s his­to­ry of ­severe arte­ri­al dis­ease, weak­ness of the arte­ri­al wall was ­thought to be respon­sible for this anas­to­mot­ic false aneu­rysm. Due to sig­nif­i­cant risk fac­tors, the ­patient was treat­ed with trans­cath­et­er inter­ven­tion and he recov­ered with­out com­pli­ca­tions.
