Rachel Bell (Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, London, UK) describes a variety of specialist surgical options to treat infection after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), a relatively rare occurrence that can have devastating complications. She stresses the importance of dealing with the problem within a multidisciplinary team and highlights the positive results achieved in her unit, which is seeing a survival rate of 88% at three years post intervention. Bell, who is the current president of the British Society for Endovascular Therapy (BSET) spoke to Vascular News at the recent London Aortic Symposium.
