A 72-year-old man is found to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm that is 5.7 cm in diameter, and endovascular repair is considered. The use of an abdominal aortic stent–graft for repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is associated with lower early mortality than open surgical repair but also with a higher risk of subsequent need for reintervention and with a less certain long-term outcome. 
Endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm associated with a horseshoe kidney and graft thrombosis in early follow-up
TLDR
The technique used, including the embolization of aortic side branches, to avoid endoleaks, and the management of thrombotic complications during follow-up are described. Expand
Entire stent grafting of the thoracoabdominal aorta in a renal transplant recipient subsequent to extra-anatomical bypasses of the main abdominal vessels.
TLDR
This patient was treated successfully combining extra-anatomical bypasses of main abdominal arteries and subsequent endovascular stent grafting covering the entire thoracoabdominal aorta. Expand
Contemporary management of aorto-iliac aneurysms in the endovascular era.
TLDR
The contemporary management of aorto-iliac aneurysm in the endovascular era with reference to the sequelae of IIA occlusion and the strategies to preserve IIA perfusion is discussed. Expand
Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: Only a Mechanical Solution for a Biological Problem?
TLDR
The mechanical and biological challenges associated with endovascular treatment of infrarenal AAAs are reviewed and potential approaches to ongoing aneurysmal degeneration are discussed, which hampers long-term outcomes of this minimally invasive therapy. Expand
Endovascular Treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Application of the Chimney and Periscope Graft Technique in Juxta- and Pararenal Aneurysms
TLDR
In abdominal aortic aneurysm, endovascular repair (EVAR) has been established for more than 20 years so far and has led to an extension of indications and a widespread global acceptance of EVAR. Expand
Treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms: the role of endovascular repair.
TLDR
Patients who undergo endovascular repair of an AAA should receive lifelong monitoring for complications, especially endoleaks, and patients who undergoEndovascular aneurysm repair is less invasive than open surgical repair. Expand
Evaluation of the perioperative risk factors in patients with the abdominal aorta aneurysm--literature review.
TLDR
According to recommendation of EUROSTaR, the recommended conventional assessments of surgical risk in patients diagnosed with AAA include: American Society of Anesthesiologists classification (aSa) and a numerical scale prepared by Society for Vascular Surgery and International Society for CardioVascular Surgery (SVS/ISCVS).

Most Patients with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Are Not Suitable for Endovascular Repair Using Currently Approved Bifurcated Stent-Grafts
TLDR
Assessment of morphologic suitability (MS) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) for 2 currently approved bifurcated stent grafts and identify reasons for exclusion from EVAR found that more than three fourths of the patients with an AAA =5.0 cm in size are morphologically not suitable for EVAR.

The Rupture Rate of Large Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: Is This Modified by Anatomical Suitability For Endovascular Repair?
TLDR
Rupture rates of large abdominal aortic aneurysms reported in different studies are highly variable and there is emerging evidence that patients anatomically suitable for endovascular repair have lower rupture rates. Expand
Early and Midterm Results after Open and Endovascular Repair of Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in a Comparative Analysis
TLDR
There is no evidence of a better outcome with EVAR in emergency cases when a defined patient selection is used for rupture, including hemodynamic status, so EVAR of rAAAs is feasible, with equal early and midterm mortality rates compared to open repair. Expand

TLDR
It is possible to treat rAAA with EVAR and Hypotensive patients can, at least initially, be operated under local anesthesia to stabilize blood pressure utilizing a percutaneously inserted occlusion balloon. Expand
