Özet

The endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm has become increasingly common during the past decade. However, the endoleak, a complication of endovascular repair, is also on the rise. Most of the endoleaks can be managed with endovascular techniques. In some cases, conversion to open surgery for total or partial removal of the stent-graft may be required. In this article, we report three patients who underwent partial removal of the stent-graft in the light of technical feasibility and possible complications of the procedure.
