In this case, we describe a case of a 76-year-old male with extensive aortoiliac aneurysms treated by endovascular aneurysm repair using the sandwich technique in order to preserve left internal iliac artery perfusion. The sandwich technique refers to the deployment of multiple paralleled stent grafts into main distal and side branches in overlapping with a single proximal stent graft. The procedure was successfully performed without complications. Post-procedural CT angiography demonstrated patent stent grafts without any endoleak. The strengths and limitations of the sandwich technique need to be investigated in large-scale, long-term clinical trials.
