Endovascular treatment of a type IA endoleak was conducted using a Nellix chimney graft technique for an expanding abdominal aortic aneurysm in an 84-year-old man. During the procedure, a polymer leak occurred from one of the endobags. Postoperatively, the patient developed hemodynamic instability and a swollen leg on the side of the leaking endobag, resulting in a fatal outcome.
