1. A modular prosthesis for repairing an aortic aneurysm, comprisinga base member foldable radially between a collapsed configuration and an expanded configuration and extending longitudinally between a proximal end and a distal end, said base member having a single inlet at said proximal end and dividing means for forming first and second passageways communicating between said proximal and distal ends,a primary tubular limb foldable radially between a collapsed configuration and an expanded configuration and having a proximal end and a distal end, said primary limb having a single inlet at said proximal end and a single outlet at said distal end, said primary limb being formed separately from said base member and being adapted to lie in the aorta with said proximal end pointing toward the heart, andjoining means for intraluminally joining said distal end of said primary limb to said proximal end of said base member.
