The detection of intraprosthetic thrombus (IPT) deposits is a common finding during follow-up for endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair (EVAR); however, its clinical significance is still debated. The aim of this study was to determine if IPT represents a risk factor for thromboembolic events (TE; endograft or limb thrombosis, or distal embolization) after EVAR.
