Abstract

Endograft infection is a rare event, with few reports in the literature. This report describes delayed infection of an aortic endoprosthesis that eventually resulted in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture. The procedure was performed in an angiographic suite. In the postoperative period the patient developed a central venous line infection. This appears to be the first recognized and reported case in which the infected aortic neck completely dilated due to the radial force of the stent graft.
