Abstract

Endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms has become a well-established and safe treatment modality. Since its development in 1991 by Juan Parodi, an increasing number of procedures have been performed worldwide. The advantages of an endovascular approach include decreased blood loss, length of hospitalization, and early morbidity and mortality. Endovascular therapy is particularly well-suited for the elderly, higher-risk patient and for those with prior aortic operations. This review summarizes the world's literature to date regarding endovascular aortic aneurysm repair in table form and should serve as a practical and prompt literature search tool.
