Aortic rupture following an EVAR secondary to graft erosion


Banzic, Igor; Lachat, Mario L; Rancic, Zoran (2016). Aortic rupture following an EVAR secondary to graft erosion. Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 87(4):783-786.

Abstract

Significant type 3 endoleak as a defect in the graft material, especially associated with endograft rupture, is a rare complication. A 68-year-old male patient with aortic plaque rupture was treated with endovascular graft placement. The patient was readmitted two years later with severe abdominal pain, a large retroperitoneal hematoma and contrast extravasation below the location where the aortic plaque had presented. Before an aortic infrarenal cuff could be placed during a control angiography, a large graft hole and a significant type 3 endoleak were observed. The sharp aortic plaque may have been responsible for the endograft tear. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
