Percutaneous endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair: State-of-the art

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2020 Mar 1;95(4):767-782. doi: 10.1002/ccd.28576. Epub 2019 Nov 14.


Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms emerged initially as an alternative treatment strategy for patients considered to be inoperable or high risk for surgery. The evolution of endovascular techniques has made this technology a safe and less invasive alternative to open surgery for patients with suitable aortic anatomy. This manuscript reviews the current state of the art for endovascular AAA repair techniques, clinical outcomes, guideline recommendations, and future applications.

Keywords: aortic aneurysm; aortic endograft; endovascular repair.
