The suitability for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is determined primarily by abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) anatomy. For patients unsuitable for standard EVAR, due to proximal neck anatomy, fenestrated aortic stent-grafting (FEVAR) is a viable alternative to open repair surgery. Initially FEVAR stent-grafts were custom-made to fit the unique anatomical characteristics of each treated individual. This customization leads to production delays therefore excluding acute aneurysms from endovascular treatment. For patients in need for more urgent treatment, several alternatives have currently been developed. The aim of this review is to provide an overview on current developments and results in acute endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
