Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) technique is a minimally invasive procedure approach to abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. Following EVAR, isolated aortic tissue starts remodeling after the new blood path is established. The commercially available endovascular grafts (EVG) have been found to be prone to Type I endoleak, which is re-pressurization of the degenerated AAA sac following a breach in the seal mechanism of the EVG or migration due to failure of the mechanism holding the graft… CONTINUE READING
