Abstract

Abstract This case concerns a 73 year-old woman, that suffered form Symptomatic Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm. Due to the complex anatomy of the aneurysm she was treated with Nellix Endovascular Aneurysm Seal Device. The implantation was successful, and the completion angiography showed no endoleak. At day 9 after the procedure, the patient presented severe abdominal pain with peritoneal symptoms, significant anemia and hypovolemic shock. The patient was subject to emergency laparotomy. The aortic rupture was identified. The Nellix device was removed and replaced with bifurcated silver-covered PTFE graft.
