Type 1

  • endoleak related to the device itself

Type 2

  • endoleak due to retrograde flow from collaterals

Type 3

  • endoleak due to fabric tears, graft disconnection or disintegration

Type 4

  • flow through the graft presumed to be associated with graft wall "porosity"

Endotension

  • persistent or recurrent pressurization of the sac with no evidence of endoleak

... but I would more especially commend the clinician who, in acute diseases, by which the bulk of mankind are cutoff, conducts the treatment better than others.
 
Hippocrates, 400 BC
