There is insufficient published data to establish the true incidence of post-EVAR infections. However, the incidence of EVAR infection is estimated to be somewhere between 0.6 and 3% [3, 4]. We are presenting a case of a high risk 67-year-old male patient with infected Cook's modular AAA graft and stent extensions in the right common iliac artery (WALLSTENT™).

Case Presentation
This is a report of a high risk 67-year-old male patient with coronary heart disease (postmyocardial infarction caused by right coronary artery occlusion) with left ventricular ejection fraction 40%, type 2 diabetes mellitus, renal insufficiency (KDOQI: stage 3a), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (GOLD Criteria: stage 2), and arterial hypertension (WHO ll.). During general medical examination at a different center a pulsating sensation in the abdomen was observed....
