The aim of this study is to understand The use of fenestrated and branched endografts for the treatment of complex aortic aneurysms is increasing. Despite the low morbidity and mortality associated with these repairs, reintervention rates in the midterm and long term remain a concern. The purpose of this study was to investigate our experience with reinterventions after fenestrated and branched endovascular aneurysm repair (F/BEVAR).

We performed a retrospective analysis of all patients treated with F/BEVAR at our institution during the years 2009 to 2019. Among them, we identified those who required reinterventions during the period of follow-up. Data collected included patients’ demographics, type of treated aneurysm, indications for reintervention, and methods of repair. During the study period, 47 patients underwent F/BEVAR. A total of 160 branches were placed. Of those, 12 patients (25%) underwent 15 secondary interventions for late-occurring complications. Among those requiring reinterventions, mean age was 70 years (range, 59-80 years), and 10 (83%) were male.
