First generation aortic endovascular stent-grafts (EVG) had low applicability and were associated with a significant incidence of peri-procedural complications. With time, a number of EVG systems perished (some predictably) in a “survival of the fittest”. Improvements in design have been made as a result of these failures. Current designs have low peri-procedural morbidity and mortality and improving durability. This paper sets out to discuss the use of a variety of EVG for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The ideal properties of an EVG will be outlined along with some of the advantages and limitations of current, and, where appropriate, historical, commercially available stent-graft systems.
