Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become tremendously popular in recent years. However, the long-term results of these stent grafts are uncertain and are still being evaluated. According to some data, the graft-related complication rate after EVAR could be as high as 43% in long-term observation. In this case report, we present a patient who had all dangerous types of endoleaks after EVAR and required sophisticated management including endovascular and open surgical repairs. After repeated invasive treatment, it was possible to exclude all endoleaks, and now the patient is free from graft-related complications. Although EVAR has become very popular, we should remember about possible complications, which could be very severe and life-threatening. For this reason, the choice between endovascular and open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm should be well considered.
