Endovascular Aneurysm Repair – EVAR

This procedure treats aortic aneurysm. Surgeons from Abington – Jefferson Health’s Blank Vascular Center perform endovascular aneurysm repair, or EVAR, in a technologically advanced, on-site vascular laboratory.

EVAR Treatment for Aneurysm

Endovascular aneurysm repair is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring only small incisions in the groin.

Using a thin catheter, or tube, our surgeons work through arteries to reach the aorta and maneuver a three-pronged graft to seal off the damaged area. This keeps the aneurysm from bursting. Self-expanding stents (small mesh tubes) hold the graft in place.

Patients may be hospitalized one to three nights. Recovery is achieved in about two to four weeks.

The high quality and cost-efficiency of our heart services have earned Abington Hospital recognition as a Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care® by Independence Blue Cross.Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care
