According to our cardiologist, an aneurysm refers to bulging or dilatation of the wall of an artery. Conventional treatment involves surgically opening of your chest/abdomen to treat the aneurysm, but the EVAR method differs from traditional treatment, it’s minimally invasive trans catheter procedure. In the EVAR procedure, a stent graft (a thin fabric tube supported by a metal wire stent) is inserted into the aneurysm through small incisions made into the artery of leg to strengthen the weak spot in the aorta.

Then, using X-ray guidance in Cath lab, the cardiologist threads the stent graft into the aneurysm segment of the aorta. Then the stent graft is gradually expanded inside the aorta and creates a stable channel to increase blood flow. In addition, the stent graft strengthens the weak part of the aorta, preventing the aneurysm from rupturing.

The most incredible thing about EVAR is that it reduces the risks of open surgery, and EVAR treatment is less painful than open surgery.
