Abstract

Endovascular grafting represents a minimally invasive approach to prosthetic aortic grafting for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). We reviewed our initial experience with a bifurcated endovascular graft that shares with conventional grafts the characteristics of discrete transaortic fixation and unitary unsupported woven polyester construction. Twenty-eight patients (26 male, 2 female; age: 58-93) with infrarenal aortic aneurysms between 41 and 82 mm in greatest diameter (x = 55.4 mm) underwent bifurcated endovascular grafting (Guidant/EVT, Menlo Park, CA) over an 18-month period. We concluded that bifurcated endovascular grafting with the EVT(R) device provides reliable and reproducible aneurysm exclusion with short hospital recovery and low morbidity.
