A number of interesting points are raised in this relatively short manuscript. The authors conclude that there is an unmet need for robust independent international registry data from the manufacturers so that stakeholders can have informed choices on the performance of stent grafts. Perhaps most importantly, the authors conclude that the failed stent grafts had indications of failure in the completion angiogram, and it is not clear if action was taken.
