Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR)
This minimally invasive procedure treats aortic aneurysm. In endovascular aneurysm repair, Blank Vascular Center surgeons use small incisions in the groin and work through arteries to reach the aorta.
Using a thin catheter, the vascular surgeons maneuver a three-pronged graft to seal off the damaged area. This keeps the aneurysm from bursting. Self-expanding stents (thin mesh tubes) hold the graft in place.
