Abstract

We present a case of an elderly man with the persisting type II endoleak following endovascular aneurysm repair. In a view of the multiple comorbidities, the patient was denied an open elective repair. However, when presented with a ruptured aneurismal sac, he underwent an emergency open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Overall, the patient has made a good postoperative recovery.
