Endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has become a widespread and accepted practice in most Vascular Surgery centres. The optimal method to identify and characterise complications still awaits assessment. CASE REPORT: An 83-year-old woman was admitted to our Institution for volumetric expansion of the aneurysm sac due to a suspected type II endoleak. Post-analysis, using OsiriX, revealed the presence of a hole at the distal portion of the main body in the docking zone near the flow divider. CONCLUSION: OsiriX is an image processing software and an attractive alternative to dedicated workstations and allows rendering and analysis of numerous medical imaging modalities.
