Abstract

In 1991, Parodi et al. described their initial venture into stent-graft placement for the treatment of aortic aneurysms. The purpose of aneurysm treatment is to prolong life by preventing aneurysm rupture. Given the less invasive approach of the endograft procedure compared to open surgical repair, it is not surprising that endovascular treatment has gained momentum in recent years. However, endograft treatment is not without complication. The most common complication following endograft placement is endoleak. This chapter will focus on the detection and management of endoleak following endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
