Endovascular treatment of occlusive disease of the aortic bifurcation is challenging. We developed the Covered Endovascular Reconstruction of Aortic Bifurcation or CERAB-technique, as a new approach for extensive and/or recurrent aortoiliac occlusive disease using three covered balloon expandable stents to reconstruct the aortic bifurcation. This configuration provides the ability to deal with TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC II) C and D lesions, simulating a neo-bifurcation or flow divider in combination with the benefits of covered stents. The intervention can be performed percutaneously or as a hybrid procedure. Initial results are encouraging and further studies are indicated.
