A 68-year-old male patient was referred to our clinic for treatment of an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. Computed tomography angiography revealed a horseshoe kidney overlying the aneurysm. The patient had an accessory renal artery arising from the anterior aspect of the aneurysm. Endovascular aneurysm repair was performed and the accessory renal artery could be revascularized successfully by chimney technique without any morbidity. Postoperative computed tomography angiography revealed complete exclusion of the aneurysm with no endoleak and a patent chimney graft.
