Aortic Aneurysm is a widening of the aorta (body’s largest artery) at a certain spot in the wall of aorta and can potentially rupture the artery due to blood pressure and other factors such as xxx. This can lead to massive internal bleeding if not rapidly treated by experienced emergency medical team. As aorta carries blood from heart and runs through chest and abdomen, the aneurysms are possibly observed at these locations and termed as abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA). Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is performed to correct these aneurysms in which the weak spot is sealed tightly with an endovascular stent graft.
