Abstract

Fluid around the graft in the original aneurysm sac after open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is a poorly researched phenomenon. If large, such perigraft seroma can cause symptoms of compression, and cases of rupture have even been described. We assessed whether endarterectomy of the aneurysm sac reduces the incidence of perigraft fluid and improves graft incorporation.
