Aortoiliac aneurysms constitute one of the main challenges facing vascular surgeons worldwide. We report for the first time the successful reconstruction of the aorta and iliac arteries with a quadrifurcated prosthesis, in a 72-year-old man with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm, and aneurysms of the iliac arteries involving both iliac bifurcations. The aortoiliac reconstruction was performed with a quadrifurcated knitted Dacron graft, revascularising both internal and external iliac arteries. In our opinion, the use of such a graft is recommended in aortoiliac revascularisations whenever it is advisable for the preservation of flow to internal iliac arteries.
