A vascular graft or endograft infection (VGEI) is a severe complication that can occur after vascular graft or endograft surgery and is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. A multidisciplinary approach, consisting of a team of vascular surgeons, infectious diseases specialists, medical microbiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, and hospital pharmacists, is needed to adequately diagnose and treat VGEI. A structured diagnostic, antibiotic, and surgical treatment algorithm helps clinical decision making and ultimately aims to improve the clinical outcome of patients with a VGEI.
