Abstract

Purpose: To describe an unusual presentation of impending aortic endograftrupture and successful endovascular rescue. Case Report: A 77-year-old man with an enlarging aortic aneurysm was treated with a Talent bifurcated endoprosthesis; a moderate endoleak that appeared to be related to either proximal or distal fixation sites was noted in the body of the aneurysm. The patient was observed for 1 month, and repeat imaging demonstrated persistent endoleak without major increase in the aneurysm diameter. Another examination was scheduled for 3 months hence, but, 2 months later, the patient presented with abdominal pain and a hemoperitoneum. A proximal extension cuff resolved the leak and led to resolution of thehemoperitoneum. Conclusions: A leaking aneurysm can be repaired using endovascular techniques in patients with an existing endograft. The need for frequent imaging surveillance of patients with endoleak is underscored.
