☆WHAT THIS PAPER ADDS: This study presents the largest available series on the use of secondary iliac branch devices after endovascular aortic repair, with a safe and effective procedure showing 100% of technical success, 0% early mortality, and no issue on the previously implanted endograft. Results were unbiased by the choice of access to revascularise hypogastric artery. The durability of the repair with secondary iliac branch device is acceptable, long term mortality is not affected by aorto-iliac repair, and the revascularised hypogastric arteries show low rates of internal iliac artery instability and reinterventions. Thus, the repair can be effectively carried out in a population with reasonable life expectancy.
