Of the 482 patients with AAA who were selected for EVAR treatment, 23 received acute intervention and were excluded. EL1A was found in 18 patients, two of which received custom made endografts and in four cases the CTA images were missing. These were therefore excluded. Of the 441 remaining EVAR, 48 controls were selected based on matching for hostile neck anatomy. AAA: abdominal aortic aneurysm. EVAR: endovascular aneurysm repair. EL1A: endoleak type 1A. CTA: computed tomography angiography.
