Abstract

The endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms has been investigated in a clinical setting since 1991. Although initially the procedure was performed using surgeon-made devices, it did not take long for the medical industry to realize the potential of this procedure. There are six commercially made devices, which are unique, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. This article describes the principal endovascular graft types that are currently under investigation as well as the strategies for their use. In addition, the inclusion criteria for endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms are discussed.
