Abstract

Recently, endovascular repairs for aortic aneurysms have become highly popular particularly in high-risk patients. Despite growing experience and knowledge in this field, certain problems are still to be solved. Endoleak is the most common complication after endovascular procedures. Endoleak can be defined as incomplete sealing of the aneurysm sac, resulting in continuous pressure on the aneurysm cavity and persistent rupture risk. Several methods are available for the management of proximal and the distal type 1 endoleaks. In this article, we present a 61-year-old male case who underwent aortic banding for the repair of type 1b endoleak.
