Endoleak classification

The classification of endoleak:

  • type I: leak at graft ends often due to inadequate seal
  • type II: sac filling via branch vessel (e.g. lumbar or inferior mesenteric artery)
  • type III: leak through a defect in graft fabric (mechanical failure of graft)
  • type IV: a porous graft (intentional design of graft)
  • type V: endotension
