Type II endoleak is the most common complication after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). The management remains controversial. We present a case in which endoleak was successfully treated by direct percutaneous thrombin injection with hydrodissection. This method seems to be a safe and feasible alternative method for treatment of type II endoleak.
