Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) offers a minimally invasive treatment to patients with improved short-term and similar mid-term results compared to conventional, open repair. Approximately 20% of patients have an aneurysm neck morphology inadequate for a standard stent-graft and requires an endograft to cross vital aortic side branches to achieve a seal. This work describes the promising single center preliminary results in the management of juxtarenal aortic aneurysm using E-vita stent-graft.
