The authors studied outcomes after endovascular AAA aneurysm repair (EVAR) to assess whether ongoing aortic remodeling related to systemic inflammatory disease (SID) contributes to an increased incidence of endoleak.  65% of 79 treated patients had systemic inflammatory disease.  Major complication rates were increased 7-fold in the group with SID.  This group also experienced a 2.5-fold greater incidence of endoleaks and a 2-fold greater rate of late sac expansion.  More interventions were required in the SID group.
