A 70-year-old man was seen with an iliac artery aneurysm and this was treated by an intraluminal graft-stent device introduced through the femoral artery. After the procedure, patency of the artery was proved to be good with control angiography but the mass effect of the aneurysmal sac on the gastrointestinal system did not disappear and we replaced the aneurysmatic segment with a collagen coated graft. The patient then recovered without any complications and gastrointestinal symptoms.
