Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair by endovascular techniques have gained wide acceptance as a treatment option. A potential well-known complication of endovascular repair includes endoleak. Specifically, type II endoleak, which is described as retrograde flow into the aneurysm sac through collateral vessels, can occur in up to 30% of patients. Certain preoperative factors can predict which patients may develop type II endoleak. This article describes laparoscopic inferior mesenteric artery ligation prior to endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair as a viable treatment option in the prevention of type II endoleak.
