Although most type II endoleaks are self-limiting, the most common indication for secondary intervention after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is type II endoleak. However, it is still debatable when to treat them. Furthermore, different intervention techniques are available to treat type II endoleaks. The aim of this review is to look at current evidence and updates on type II endoleaks after EVAR for abdominal aortic aneurysm and their management.


KEY WORDS: Endoleak - Aortic aneurysm - Epidemiology
