Background: Type II endoleaks from a patent inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) occur in up to one-third of patients undergoing endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. In the majority of patients, retrograde flow in the aneurysmal sac outside the endograft will seal over time and is rarely associated with sac enlargement or aortic rupture. Intervention is generally recommended in patients with progressively enlarging endoleaks, especially when the sac diameter increases >10 mm during the follow-up, and endovascular IMA embolization has a high rate of treatment failure. Methods: We report a procedure of laparoscopic IMA clipping combined with intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) angiography to confirm vascular anatomy, colonic perfusion, and the technical success of the procedure. Results: Three selected octogenarian patients with persistent type II endoleak after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm underwent IMA clipping with ICG angiography. Mean operative time was 58 ± 9 minutes. There were no procedure-related complications, and no hypersensitivity reactions nor other side effects associated with ICG dye administration occurred. All patients were discharged home on postoperative day 1 and are asymptomatic and free of recurrence at a mean follow-up of 15 months. Conclusions: Laparoscopic IMA clipping is a safe remedial procedure in patients with type II endoleak after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Abstract

Background: Type II endoleaks from a patent inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) occur in up to one-third of patients undergoing endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. In the majority of patients, retrograde flow in the aneurysmal sac outside the endograft will seal over time and is rarely associated with sac enlargement or aortic rupture. Intervention is generally recommended in patients with progressively enlarging endoleaks, especially when the sac diameter increases >10 mm during the follow-up, and endovascular IMA embolization has a high rate of treatment failure. Methods: We report a procedure of laparoscopic IMA clipping combined with intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) angiography to confirm vascular anatomy, colonic perfusion, and the technical success of the procedure. Results: Three selected octogenarian patients with persistent type II endoleak after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm underwent IMA clipping with ICG angiography. Mean operative time was 58 ± 9 minutes. There were no procedure-related complications, and no hypersensitivity reactions nor other side effects associated with ICG dye administration occurred. All patients were discharged home on postoperative day 1 and are asymptomatic and free of recurrence at a mean follow-up of 15 months. Conclusions: Laparoscopic IMA clipping is a safe remedial procedure in patients with type II endoleak after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
