Purpose: We report a single-center experience with the endovascular management of mycotic aortic aneurysms. Case reports: Four cases of mycotic aortic aneurysms are described; all treated with endovascular stent graft with variable configurations. All patients underwent successful placement of stent grafts for their aneurysms. No 30-day perioperative mortality was observed. One patient died during the follow-up period from a cause unrelated to the aneurysm. Conclusion: Repair of mycotic aneurysms can be accomplished with endovascular repair. This may be a valid alternative to open repair particularly in patients who are not candidates for conventional open repair.
