The topic of this month is called ENDOLEAKS-CASE-BASED SOLUTIONS and aims to provide more information to the discussants of the session about endoleaks that will take place on Thursday, January 30, 2020 in Leipzig, during the LINC symposium. Take the opportunity to answer the questions and to inform the experts about your current practice for the treatment of all type of endoleaks.

Your participation will provide unique data for an interesting discussion and your answers will challenge the experts during the session.
