A Critical Appraisal of Endovascular Stent-Grafts in the Management of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

Nikolaos Schoretsanitis et al. Radiol Med.

Abstract

Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms has widely replaced the open surgical repair due to its minimal invasive nature and the accompanying lower perioperative mortality and morbidity. During the past two decades, certain improvements and developments have provided a wide variety of endograft structural designs and geometric patterns, enabling the physician to approach a more patient-specific treatment of AAA. This review presents the currently available aortic endografts and describes the clinical, technical and mechanical characteristics of them.

Keywords: Abdominal aortic aneurysm; Aortic stent-graft; Clinical performance; Endovascular aneurysm repair; Hemodynamics.
