Type 2 endoleak (T2EL) is the most common complication following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for abdominal aortic aneurysms. The management of T2ELs is controversial due to the relatively low incidence of negative outcomes when secondary intervention is avoided. Some studies challenge this practice as demonstrated by adverse events following conservative treatment of T2ELs. Evidence has shown that the preoperative computed tomographic angiogram can predict the development of T2EL based… CONTINUE READING
