Endovascular Aortic Repair

Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) in a transcatheter method to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and thoracic endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (TEVAR). The procedure usually involves placement of self-expanding,covered stent grafts to close off the aneurysm and prevent further aortic leaks. This can be used instead of open vascular surgery. EVAR today accounts for the majority of aortic aneurysm repairs compared to surgery.
