Although technological improvements have increased, EVAR is still not free of complications during or after EVAR-procedure. Infection complication during EVAR is considered quite rare, and contamination during the procedure is proposed the foremost reason. Radiological evidence such as the presence of air bubble within the excluded aneurysmal sac in the early post-procedure period of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) might be an important finding of infection, even in the absence of any symptoms; and thereby, it should be monitored closely.
