Abstract

Rupture of an aortic aneurysm is a major cause of early mortality during the course of disease. A less invasive approach with fewer complications is sought. A case of leaking thoracic aortic aneurysm is presented, where endovascular approach was adapted owing to ongoing sepsis. This report indicates prospects for employment of endovascular stenting as a suitable alternative to surgery in a growing variety of settings.
