The article deals with four reports of rarely encountered clinical cases, i.e., a ruptured aneurysm of the abdominal aorta in patients having previously sustained endovascular grafting of the abdominal aorta for the pathology concerned. The incidence rate of such complications we faced for the first time in 2001 has ever since amounted to 1.6% of the total number of patients with a ruptured aneurysm admitted to our Department over the period form 2001 to 2006 (250 patients). All the patients were emergently operated on, with the lethality rate amounting to 50% (two of the four patients died). The time having elapsed from the primary operation (endovascular grafting of the abdominal aorta aneurysm) till the rupture ranged from 11 days to 3 years.

KEY WORDS: abdominal aorta aneurysm, rupture, endovascular grafting.
