Abstract

The type IIIb endoleak a rare complication of endovascular aneurysmal repair caused by endoprosthesis problem leading to deteriorating rupture, which is one of the major reasons for lifelong imaging surveillance. We report a case of an early-onset type IIIb endoleak from a tear in main body bifurcation (flow divider) area like crotch point tearing of pants following additional intervention to reduce immediate type Ia endoleak. Successful treatment of the endoleak was achieved by surgical conversion.
