Surgeon Modified Fenestrated EVAR 2.0

Clinical case video describing urgent correction of a proximal type I endoleak, in previous standard EVAR procedure, which caused a rapid growth of the residual aneurysmal sac. The patient was unfit for open surgery due to multiple severe comorbidities. Considering the urgency setting, the use of a market available custom-made device was not reasonable. For this reason, the patient underwent endovascular correction using a “surgeon modified” endograft (Medtronic Valiant Navion Thoracic Endograft) designed with four custom fenestrations for visceral and renal vessels.
