Abstract

The paradigm in elective surgical management of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) has quickly shifted from major open surgical repairs to less invasive, endovascular procedures. In the last few years, there have been numerous advancements to commercially available devices making the endovascular approach more attractive and efficacious. This review serves to detail the similarities, differences, advantages, and disadvantages of currently available endovascular stent-grafts as well as preview future and emerging technologies in endovascular aortic therapies.
