Abstract

We present a unique case of abdominal aortic aneurysm initially presenting with inferior vena cava compression leading to deep venous thrombosis, for which the patient subsequently underwent an endovascular aortic repair. Aorto-uni-iliac endografting was performed for subacute occlusion of left common iliac artery complicated by proximal type 1 endoleak. Subsequent management of the endoleak was successful, using a liquid embolic agent (cyanoacrylate) by transarterial approach. Transarterial catheter embolization with glue and coils is a feasible technique for high flow type 1 endoleaks. Glue injection carries the risk of non-target embolization, and thus this option should be reserved for experienced hands.
