Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been established as a safe and effective treatment modality for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. Endograft migration resulting in a proximal type I endoleak can be one of the most difficult challenges following EVAR. Often, this precludes endovascular treatment and necessitates conversion to open surgical repair. We report a case of a high-risk patient who presented with impending abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture as a result of endograft migration following EVAR performed 5 years prior. The endograft had folded over on itself within the aneurysm sac and was successfully repaired using a total endovascular approach.
