An endovascular stent graft is like having a small, metal scaffold inside your aorta. It supports the weak area, so you can return to normal activities.
An endovascular stent graft is a synthetic fabric tube (graft) supported by a metal structure (stent). The stent graft helps to bypass the area of the aorta weakened by the aneurysm to keep it from rupturing.
The stent graft is designed so that it can be placed inside of the abdominal aorta, without surgically opening the blood vessel or removing any tissue.
All treatment and outcome results are specific to the individual patient, and will form part of your consultation with your healthcare professional.
