Thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair
Endovascular aneurysm repair (or endovascular aortic repair) (EVAR) is a type of endovascular surgery used to treat an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or thoracic aortic aneurysm, the procedure then specifically termed TEVAR (thoracic endovascular aortic/aneurysm repair). Aortic aneurysms are bulges in the aorta, the main blood vessel that brings blood from the heart to the rest of the body. In certain occasions, a specially designed custom-made graft device ("endograft"), which has holes (fenestrations) on the graft body to maintain the patency of certain important blood vessels, is used for the procedure, which is called FEVAR (fenestrated endovascular aortic/aneurysm repair). Standard EVAR is appropriate for aneurysms that begin below the renal arteries, where there exists an adequate length of normal aorta (the "proximal aortic neck") for reliable attachment of the endograft without leakage of blood around the device ("endoleak").
Patients with aneurysms require elective repair of their aneurysm when it reaches a diameter large enough where the risk of rupture is great. Repair is also warranted for aneurysms that rapidly enlarge or those that have been the source of emboli (debris from the aneurysm that dislodge and travel into other arteries). Lastly, repair is also indicated for aneurysms that are the source of pain and tenderness, which may indicate impending rupture. The options for repair include traditional open surgery or endovascular repair.

For decades, CVTSA surgeons repaired thoacic aortic aneurysms through open, complex and long operations. Thanks to advances in medical technology, many patients are now candidates for minimally invasive surgical repair. Our thoracic aortic aneurysm surgeons have been performing minimally invasive thoracic aortic aneurysm surgery on patients from Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC, since they were introduced to the market three years ago. In fact, CVTSA surgeons have one of the largest experiences with this surgery on the east coast. To make an appointment, call (703) 280-5858.
