FULL TEXT  


The vast majority of AAA is now treated by endovascular therapy (EVAR), as the current generation of devices has reduced device-related complications, with fair long-term results as long as surgeons comply with IFU, i.e. in favorable anatomies. Although there will always remain indications for open repair (OR), technological and technical advances such as fenestrated/branched endografts, parallel grafts and endovascular sealing of the aneurysm, will probably further reduce indications for OR. The major drawback of EVAR is the need for long-term surveillance in order to prevent the risk of late rupture.
