The endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is the treatment of choice for the majority of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms(AAA) by supporting endovascular technology. But there are some potential complications during or post procedure. We present a case who underwent endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for an AAA occured splenic artery infarction after procedure.
