Can I re-route PVC vent pipe in attic

I need to relocate a vent pipe in the attic. Would it be a problem if I added a 45 and a 90 to move it out of the way? Thanks

I don't see any reason why it would be a problem.
Vent lines don't have to go straight up.

Thanks... I know very little about plumbing systems, but I was hoping that adding additional "bends" wouldn't affect airflow for venting.

Air is not affected by fittings like water is.

You just have to maintain a downhill slope on the vent pipes that run horizontally. 1/4" per ft minimum

I appreciate the replies. Looks like I'll be able to get this done and not wreck my plumbing.
