Abstract

Translumbar embolization was used to treat 11 type 2 endoleaks in nine patients with the liquid embolic agent n-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA). Nine of the embolizations were performed with a combination of stainless-steel coils and NBCAJ and the other two were performed with NBCA alone. There was complete occlusion on initial computed tomographic (CT) angiography in six of nine patients (66%), including the two cases treated with NBCA alone. Persistent endoleak on initial CT angiography occurred in three of nine patients (33%). Two of these patients underwent successful repeated embolization with NBCA. Aneurysm size remained unchanged in four patients (44%), decreased in four patients (44%), and increased in one patient (11%). No complications occurred. Initial results with the use of NBCA for endoleak embolization are encouraging.
