Abstract

While the risk of haemorrhage related to aneurysm recurrence after endovascular treatment is not well established, concerns about it lead to imaging follow-up and further treatments that have a real impact on patients' lives. These concerns are also the motor of technological developments aiming at reducing the recurrence rate but also having the potential to increase the complication rate of initial treatment. This article will address some issues related to aneurysm recurrence in view of the actual literature.
