Endoleaks are defined as persistent perfusion of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) after endovascular stent-graft deployment. The authors describe their experience treating six endoleaks with the liquid embolic agent Onyx (ethylene-vinyl-alcohol copolymer). Complete endoleak occlusion was achieved in five of six cases. Follow-up imaging has demonstrated decreased aneurysm diameter in all patients 7-29 weeks (mean = 19.2 weeks) after treatment.
