OBJECTIVES: To present long-term results of endoleak/endograft migration treatment by aortomonoiliac (AMI) endografting after failed endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. DESIGN: Post hoc analysis of a prospectively gathered database at a tertiary care university hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From March 1995 to November 2010, 23 patients were identified who underwent modification into AMI configuration after failed elective EVAR. Major causes for modification were type I (with/without endograft migration) or type III endoleaks with aneurysm expansion. An average increase in aneurysm size of 1.6 cm (range: -1.5 to 10.5 cm) since initial aneurysm treatment was observed. Interventional outcomes and long-term results were recorded for analysis. RESULTS: Technical success rate of AMI endografting was 95.65% (n = 22). All except two endoleaks could be successfully sealed with this manoeuvre (94.44%). Median time to modification was 5.3 years (interquartile range Q1-Q3: 1.3-9.3 years). No intra-operative conversion to open surgery was necessary and mortality was 0%. Median follow-up was 44 months (interquartile range Q1-Q3: 17-69 months). CONCLUSIONS: Treatment of graft-related endoleaks/endograft migration by AMI endografting after failed EVAR represents a safe and feasible procedure. This approach broadens the minimal invasive opportunities of aneurysm treatment, and open surgical conversion may be avoided except in selected patients.
