In the endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm, failure of advancing the catheter into the contralateral leg leads to change the operative strategy. In this article, we report a 77-year-old male case with contralateral leg catheterization at the suprarenal region with collapsing the main body of the graft in a giant aneurysm.
