☆WHAT THIS PAPER ADDS: This is the first study to report the average need for additional proximal aortic coverage comparing custom made fenestrated devices with off the shelf (OTS) endografts in pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Overall, OTS endografts require 74 mm more aortic coverage than custom made fenestrated endografts, with an average sacrifice of 2.5 segmental arteries, and a requirement for longer bridging stents. In elective treatment of pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysms, a customised solution limits the extent of unnecessary aortic coverage and could thus reduce the risk of spinal cord ischaemia.
