Abstract

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. The management of abdominal aortic aneurysms has been revolutionized by the development of endovascular stent-grafts. The deployment of these devices requires precise clinical and endovascular skills. This review aims to provide an overview of the essential aspects of an endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR), from initial presentation and assessment for the procedure through to follow-up and long-term outcomes. Consideration is also given to the newer devices (e.g. fenestrated and branched stent-grafts), which have further expanded the numbers of patients who are suitable for treatment by EVAR.
