Endovascular surgery is a less invasive procedure used to treat problems affecting the blood vessels.
These can include aneurysms, which is a swelling or “ballooning” of the blood vessel. The surgery involves making an incision near each hip to access the blood vessels.
This is an alternative to open surgery, and it offers many advantages, including shorter recovery time, less discomfort, local or regional anesthesia instead of general anesthesia, smaller incisions, less stress on the heart and fewer risks for patients with other medical conditions. This procedure can benefit patients who need surgery but are at a high risk of complications because of other conditions.
