KRUTMAN, Mariana et al. Combined use of GORE TAG® and Gore Exculder® endografts for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm with severe angulation. Einstein (São Paulo) [online]. 2014, vol.12, n.4, pp.499-501.  Epub Nov 18, 2014. ISSN 2317-6385.

The advances in endovascular surgery for treatment of aortic aneurysms have allowed a greater number of patients, who were previously considered unsuitable for the approach, to benefit from this therapeutic modality. Despite the current availability of highly comfortable endografts, cases with unfavorable anatomy remain a challenge for surgeons. We report a case with difficult anatomy that was successfully managed using an unconventional endovascular technique.
