Aneurysmal degeneration of the visceral aortic patch is an uncommon late complication of surgical replacement of the thoracoabdominal aorta. We report on a 70-year-old woman who had undergone previous open thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair and subsequent revision surgery for a visceral aortic patch aneurysm. The patient presented with a recurrent asymptomatic 60-mm-diameter visceral aortic patch aneurysm involving the celiac axis and superior mesenteric artery. The lesion was successfully treated with a custom-designed Zenith branched endovascular stent graft. The patient remains well at 12 months.
