PMID:  10893129     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In the ongoing evolution of a categorization system for endoleak, the authors propose the term endotension to define persistent or recurrent pressurization of the aortic aneurysm sac after endovascular repair. Endotension is evidence that the aneurysm remains at risk of rupture and should, therefore, be considered an indication for secondary intervention. Management strategies and a grading system for endotension are offered.
