Getting an Endovascular Stent Graft

Endovascular stent grafting is a less-invasive alternative to open surgical repair. The procedure takes less time and allows you to heal quickly, so you can get back to enjoying life as soon as possible.

Is It Right for You?

Endovascular stent grafting has made abdominal aortic aneurysm repair safer and more comfortable for many people, but the procedure is not for everyone. Before recommending endovascular stent grafting for you, your doctor will take a number of factors into consideration, including your age, the size and condition of your aneurysm and aorta, your medical history, and your health history.

Surgery: What to Expect

Unless you are faced with a medical emergency, you will have time to learn about your surgery, what to expect, and how to prepare. Take an active role in learning about the procedure, so that when your doctor explains the surgery to you, you will already be somewhat familiar with the procedure.
