Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms


What Is an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm?

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the part of the aorta in the abdomen. At NewYork-Presbyterian, we have exceptional expertise caring for patients with these types of complex aneurysms.

Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Our vascular surgeons are experts in endovascular stent grafting to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms.

  • Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). Our vascular specialists can repair abdominal aortic aneurysms with endovascular stent grafts in patients whose overall health makes open surgery too dangerous.
  • Fenestrated and Branched Endografts. The treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms that occur very close to or involve important branches — such as the renal arteries, mesenteric arteries, iliac arteries, and other major branches — is complex and often requires open surgery to repair the weakened wall. Our vascular surgeons use a new type of stent graft, called a “fenestrated endograft,” which is implanted during a minimally invasive procedure. The graft is positioned at the site of the aneurysm to reinforce the aortic wall and prevent rupture.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Surgery

Complex abdominal aortic aneurysms involve the renal and mesenteric arteries. Our surgeons are some of the most experienced in the country using open surgery and endovascular techniques to treat patients with complex abdominal aneurysms, achieving some of the lowest complication rates.
