Endovascular Stent Graft Repair

Endovascular Stent Graft Repair: Endovascular repair involves inserting a catheter through a blood vessel in the groin or arm which is guided to the site of the aneurysm. This is performed under the guidance of X-ray images. The stent-graft is placed at the site of the aneurysm through the catheter. This allows blood to flow easily through the aorta and relieves pressure on the weak walls of the thoracic aorta. This procedure is feasible only if the aneurysm has a suitable shape for effective placement of stent.
