Abstract: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become an established technique for the treatment of many infrarenal aortic aneurysms. Although EVAR is obviously less invasive than open surgical repair, it is not free of complications. These can potentially result in severe morbidity or even mortality, stressing the need for an early detection and subsequent treatment. In this review article, the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of the most common complications of EVAR are described, with exception of endoleaks, a complication which is developed in another chapter.
