Abstract

The development of endovascular techniques for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has significantly reduced the major morbidity associated with standard surgical repair. The indications for use of endovascular grafts and the limitations of their use have not been fully defined. The effectiveness of the numerous commercially fabricated devices is currently being evaluated. This article describes the general principles of use for endovascular devices and details the features and results for the devices in current use.
