We present the case of a 62-year-old man who sustained a traumatic distal aortic injury associated with an adjacent lumbar vertebral body fracture resulting from a 20-ft fall. Given the site of injury, an iliac artery branched endograft was deployed off-label to preserve the aortic bifurcation and cover a limited amount of healthy aorta to preserve the collaterals. The procedure was successful, with no intraoperative complications or evidence of an endoleak. The aortic bifurcation and distal iliac arteries remained widely patent by computed tomography angiography at the follow-up examination without evidence of sequelae.
