Currently, thoracic endovascular aortic repair is usually the first-line treatment option for descending aortic pathologies. Supra-aortic or visceral branches sometimes involve assistive thoracic endovascular aortic repair techniques; hybrid procedures or intentional coverage may be performed during the procedure to achieve a sufficient proximal or distal landing zone. Most surgeons may agree on selective coverage of celiac truncus, but revascularization is preferred to reduce the risk of ischemic complications. Herein, we present the first successful surgeonmodified fenestrated stent graft procedure for celiac truncus in a patient with Crawford type V descending aortic aneurysm in Türkiye.
