The minimally invasive endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair (EVAR) procedure involves making small incisions in the groin and threading catheter tubes through the femoral arteries and into the aorta.

A fabric covered metal stent is introduced through the artery and fixed in place, relieving pressure on the artery to prevent rupture. Patients remain conscious under local anesthesia during the procedure.

Patients who undergo EVAR have lower morbidity rates and shorter recovery times and can usually resume normal activity a week after surgery.
