Endovascular repair of aortic abdominal aneurysms is a promising new technique rapidly emerging on the horizon. The graft is inserted through a femoral cutdown and placed under fluoroscopic control, thus obviating an abdominal incision. Technical advances are being announced in increasingly shorter intervals.
