[edit] Discussion

  • Endoleak is a complication of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
  • The endoleaks may continue to perfuse and pressurize the aneurysm sac, thereby conferring an ongoing risk of aneursym enlargement and/or rupture.
  • Endoleaks are classified by the source of blood flow, and organized into five categories.

[edit] Endoleak classification scheme

  • I: Attachment site leaks
  • II: Collateral vessel leaks
  • III: Graft failure (i.e. midgraft hole, junctional leak or disconnect)
  • IV: Graft wall porosity
  • V: Endotension (without or with endoleak)
