Abstract: Background: Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has lower morbidity and mortality than open surgery. Late complications and re-interventions are more common, however, and the timing of different re-interventions and their respective underlying causes are not fully understood. Aims: The overall aim was to describe re-interventions after EVAR and to identify possible underlying causes. Specific aims were as follows: 1. To describe re-interventions after EVAR, including incidence, indications, proc... more
