Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) with an associated Type II endoleak is rare. Emergent surgical repair is often necessary and may be associated with high morbidity and mortality. We report an alternative unique trans-luminal repair strategy in an 84-year-old male who presented with a rAAA with prior EVAR, and Type Ia and Type II endoleaks. The operative strategy consisted of proximal endograft extension into the para-renal aorta, followed by staged sac embolization using glue. Postoperatively, the patient recovered well from the repair, and follow-up imaging demonstrated a stable repair.
