Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) has currently replaced open surgical repair as the primary method for treating aneurysm disease of the abdominal aorta and common iliac artery. Current EVAR devices, despite undergoing multiple improvement iterations, continue to have relatively high secondary intervention rates. Device migration, endoleak and limb occlusion continue to be challenges not completely met by any of the current devices. Investigational devices presently in clinical trials may provide significant resolution for many of the identified endograft deficiencies.
