Abstract

EL is the most common complication after endovascular repair of AAA. In type I and type III EL, treatment is mandatory, whereas in type II (and type V) EL, treatment is indicated in the presence of AAA enlargement. Type IV EL generally disappear spontaneously. Endovascular repair is feasible and can be performed with different techniques according to EL aetiology, but it is not always decisive, and in some cases surgical conversion is required.
