About Endovascular Repair With a Stent Graft

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.

What Is It?

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.
