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.
