OBJECTIVE Perianeurysmal fibrosis (PAF) with involvement of neighbouring viscera can render open repair of inflammatory aneurysms technically difficult and therefore hazardous. For this reason, endovascular repair (EVAR) has been advocated as the preferred approach for this condition. EVAR is known to induce a systemic inflammatory response in patients but the nature of the local response remains unknown. If significant, such a response could exacerbate rather than ameliorate PAF.
