Abstract

We herein report a case of a late type III endoleak caused by disconnection of the aorta extension and main body of a Powerlink four years after implantation. Migration of the main body caused a disconnection of the main body and extension despite the fact that the size of the aneurysm had been decreasing. The endoleak was successfully repaired using the interpolation of an Endurant aortic extender. In case of necessity of implantation of the extension, first implantation of extension before deploying the main body may help to prevent type III endoleaks caused by disconnection of the stentgraft in patients treated with the Powerlink system. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a late type III endoleak caused by a Powerlink device.
