Abstract

The authors report a case of ongoing retroperitoneal hemorrhage from a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) following treatment by endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). Unusually, the continued hemorrhage was secondary to a lumbar type II endoleak. This was successfully embolized with onyx. Only one other similar case has been reported.
