The repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms has presently been reported to be accomplished using endovascular techniques in 60% of the cases. As technology continues to improve on the design of endovascular devices, this will only result in a progressive upward trend of this innovative method. At this time, there are multiple commercial and investigational devices available. We elect to discuss current results pertaining to the optimal candidate, characteristics, complications, and the long-term durability of aortic stent-grafts.
