Endovascular repair presents a safe and effective treatment method, but late failure of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and endoleak both remain a problem for vascular specialists. A recent paper in the Journal of Vascular Surgery1 has reported an independent association between late mortality and AAA sac diameter increases, irrespective of endoleak, and more than 50% of patients with sac expansion had no identifiable endoleak. Deery et al concluded that sac expansion of at least 5mm at one year warrants potential early intervention. Vascular News speaks to Dainis Krievins (Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital, Riga, Latvia), David Murray (Manchester University, Manchester, UK) and Paul Hayes (Cambridge University Hospitals) about the causes for EVAR failure, and how the Altura endograft from Lombard Medical can help vascular surgeons to navigate some of these challenges.
