Endoleak is a potential complication of total endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). This video and article from Fukuhara and Roselli illustrate a modified reverse frozen elephant trunk to repair a type IA endoleak from a prior TEVAR for an acute type B dissection. The authors also discuss the advantages and caveats associated with the technique shown.
