Endograft repair is a minimally invasive procedure to treat an aortic aneurysm. It does not involve a large incision. Instead, your doctor performs this treatment using flexible tubes called catheters to repair your aorta. Your doctor will insert the catheter into an artery in your upper thigh. He’ll use x-ray images to help him thread the catheter to the site of the aneurysm. Then instead of removing the aneurysm, your doctor will repair it using a graft. The graft helps strengthen this area your aorta so it can withstand the pressure of normal blood flow. This helps prevent the aneurysm from rupturing. And because the procedure does not involve a large incision, it is less traumatic and has a shorter recovery time than traditional surgery.
