The most dramatic shift in the management of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) occurred in 1991, when the first endovascular AAA repair was reported. Endovascular aneurysm repair has revolutionized the treatment of infrarenal AAAs. In the last few years, the companies have developed renewed models of grafts and have modified delivery systems tending to make them more atraumatic and flexible in order to deal with difficult anatomies and severely atheromatous and tortuous vessels. The aim of the present paper was to analyze the technical characteristics and properties of the new stent-graft system E-vita abdominal XT and to review the current literature. The E-vita abdominal XT stent-graft seems to be safe and reliable; however, long-term results are needed.
