Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

This procedure is often done to repair AAA when the aneurysm:

  • Causes physical symptoms (eg, abdominal pain)
  • Causes complications (eg, clots that travel into the legs)
  • Reaches a certain size and position that meets criteria for EVAR
  • Has burst—Surgery must be done right away.

EVAR is now the preferred method to treat AAA. EVAR can result in less pain, shorter hospital stay, fewer complications, and faster recovery time compared to open surgery. However, closer follow-up over many years is needed.
