Abstract

Endovascular repair of complex aortic disease has emerged over the past decade as an alternative to traditional open repair, especially for patients with significant medical comorbidities and/or anatomic challenges, such as reoperative fields. However, the possibility of graft migration and endoleak mandates long-term follow-up of these grafts. We present a patient who underwent hybrid repair after stent graft migration and proximal type I endoleak after thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair. This approach allowed us to avoid extensive surgery that would also necessitate circulatory arrest.
