Aortoiliac occlusive disease coincident with a congenital ectopic pelvic kidney is a rare occurrence. Traditionally, the treatment has been open aortobifemoral repair with reimplantation of the renal artery. We present a patient with Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) D bilateral aortoiliac occlusive disease, an ectopic pelvic kidney, and prohibitive medical comorbidities. We describe a totally endovascular repair using a chronic total occlusion crossing device, a luminal re-entry device, and balloon-mounted covered stents to revascularize the lower extremities and the ectopic pelvic kidney. We discuss various aspects of this endovascular approach as the incidence of patients with TASC D lesions and prohibitive comorbidities continue to rise.
