What are the Benefits of Endovascular Procedures?

For patients who meet certain criteria, endovascular procedures typically have lower risks and shorter recovery times than conventional surgical approaches.

Below is a comparison of open/traditional vs. endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm:

Incision Type Procedure Length of Stay Recovery Time

  • Open/Traditional AAA Repair

    Large abdominal incision

    Surgeon deploys specially designed, covered stent grafts to re-line the diseased blood vessel, creating a new pathway for arterial blood flow

    7-10 days

    2 to 3 months

  • Endovascular AAA Repair

    2 small incisions in the groin for insertion of graft devices

    Surgeon opens the aneurysm and replaces diseased segment of the artery with a prosthetic graft that is sewn in place

    1-2 days

    2 to 3 weeks
