A symptomatic 62 y-old male with shortness of breath and abdominal pain was found to have a rapidly enlarging aneurysm sac which has increased over 8 cm in three years on a contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan without evidence of an endoleak or extravasation. The patient had an open surgical repair of a prior abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) 12 y ago. The native aorta has increased in size to 18 cm in diameter and shows several areas of small-contained ruptures. Following successful CT guided percutaneous drainage of the sac, which yielded sterile uninfected serous fluid, there was immediate symptomatic relief and the patient continues to do well.
