Unfortunately, over 40% of patients in need of repair have aortic anatomy that is not suitable for standard EVAR devices due to the presence of branch arteries or angulation of the aortic neck in the proximal graft anchor zone. These patients either go to open surgery, which is often associated with higher risks and longer recovery times, or undergo standard EVAR, which is frequently associated with suboptimal results.
Fenestrated Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (FEVAR)
- Anchoring is secure, minimizing the likelihood of graft migration
- The graft is sealed tightly against the arterial walls, minimizing the likelihood of a type I endoleak
- Blood flow to vital organs is preserved
