Abstract

Reduction in aneurysm size during the months after an endovascular graft placement generally is considered one of the criteria of success. We report the case of a patient with an abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture occurring 9 months after a bifurcated endovascular graft placement despite a greater than 45% reduction in size noted on contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan performed at 7 months. Biomaterial modifications of the stent and of the Dacron explanted stent-graft are analyzed.
