This case report describes a case of abdominal aortic stenotic disease treated with covered balloon- expandable stent with absence of the celiac trunk artery. Technique: Patients are selected for this strategy if they have a lesion without bifurcation involvement located at the mid segment of the infrarenal aorta or stenosis with unfavorable aortic anatomy, or severely diseased and calcified distal aorta. Conclusion: Our result in this case supports the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of stenting for stenosis of the distal infrarenal aorta.
Keywords: aortic stenosis, endovascular procedures, angioplasty, endovascular surgery, celiac trunk variation
