The ­repair of abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysms ­has pres­ent­ly ­been report­ed to be accom­plished ­using endo­vas­cu­lar tech­niques in 60% of ­the cas­es. As tech­nol­o­gy con­tin­ues to ­improve on ­the ­design of endo­vas­cu­lar devic­es, ­this ­will ­only ­result in a pro­gres­sive ­upward ­trend of ­this inno­va­tive meth­od. At ­this ­time, ­there ­are mul­ti­ple com­mer­cial ­and inves­ti­ga­tion­al devic­es avail­able. We ­elect to dis­cuss cur­rent ­results per­tain­ing to ­the opti­mal can­di­date, char­ac­ter­is­tics, com­pli­ca­tions, ­and ­the ­long-­term dur­abil­ity of aor­tic ­stent-­grafts.
