Perioperative proximal endoleaks during endovascular aneurysm repair potentiate graft migration, aneurysm sac expansion, and stent-graft failure. Adjunctive placement of a Palmaz stent at the proximal landing zone can improve proximal seal and eliminate perigraft flow; however, the long-term sequelae associated with this maneuver are unknown. We sought to evaluate the ...
