This case report describes repair of a type I endoleak at the distal landing zone of a thoracic aortic stent graft by endovascular placement of a thoracoabdominal fenestrated stent graft (Cook, Brisbane, Australia). The fenestrated stent graft was interposed between a previous abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) Gelsoft tube graft (Sulzer Vascutek Ltd, Inchinnan, United Kingdom) and two overlapping Zenith thoracic endografts (Cook Inc, Bloomington, Indiana). Placement was made more complex because the distal thoracic endograft had rotated into a horizontal position. At 3-year clinical and computed tomography (CT) follow-up, continued clinical and radiologic success was shown with no further intervention required.
