Endovascular aneurysm repair

Endovascular Aneurysm Repair, or EVAR, is a minimally invasive procedure that is recommended for repairing abdominal aortic aneurysms. An Aorta is a primary artery in the human body that carries blood from the heart to other parts of the body. An aortic aneurysm happens when blood flow forces against the weak area in the wall of the blood vessel causing a bulge or aortic walls to push outwards. When it bursts, it not only causes blood flow to other organs but can turn fatal within minutes.  Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) is a lifesaving procedure that uses tiny surgical instruments to repair bulges in blood vessels.

Who Needs EVAR?

Patients with Aortic Aneurysms need an Endovascular Aneurysm Repair. Your surgeon may recommend the procedure if you have the following conditions:

  • A small or larger aneurysm that is growing at a faster rate
  • The patient is weak and cannot take an open surgery
  • If a healthy blood vessel tissue is located aneurysm

How Is EVAR Performed?

During this minimally invasive procedure, your surgeon accesses the femoral arteries near your groin to reach the abdominal aneurysm in the stomach region. A thin, flexible catheter with an expandable stent graft is inserted and guided through the femoral arteries to reach the aneurysm. Guided by real-time imaging, the catheter opens the stent graft, made of a metal mesh frame, paving away for blood to flow. The wireframe of the graft keeps it intact, preventing the blood from entering the aneurysm.  The catheter is removed after the procedure. The patient would not require any suturing and would be covered near the groin to cover the wounds for faster healing.  This procedure significantly reduces the risk of rupturing by relining the aneurysm with a new tube and bringing down pressure off the bulge. 


Yes. It is an advanced technique and is a great treatment option where open surgery is not possible, owing to the health condition of the patient.

EVAR is done by an expert Vascular Surgeon.

The patient might require 4 to 7 days of hospital stay after the procedure, depending on the other health factors.

The recovery time depends on the patient’s health history, current health and other comorbid conditions.
