Abstract

Type 2 endoleaks are a potential complication of endovascular aortic repair for abdominal aortic aneurysms. They are caused by vessels that have been excluded from the aorta lumen, but may still fill the aneurysm sac due to collateral filling. Type 2 endoleaks may lead to increased morbidity and need for additional procedures. Being able to identify patients at risk for Type 2 endoleaks and prevent them is important for any physician who is performing endovascular aortic repair.
