Abstract

Endoleak, also called leakage, leak, and Perigraft leak, is a major complication and its persistence represents a failure of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). Its detection and treatment is therefore of primary importance since endoleak is associated with pressurization (increases pressure) of the sac, resulting in expansion and rupture of the aneurysm. The aim of this article was to discuss the different options to treat endoleak.
