Former president of the Society for Vascular Surgery Ronald M. Fairman, MD, provides a comprehensive overview of the current endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) devices for infra-renal aneurysms and considers the post-operative course of these procedures, with a particular focus upon re-intervention. Dr. Fairman’s itinerary includes a discussion of the practical benefits of EVAR, the clinical trial and commercial experience with these devices, and the variety of causes for their failure as precipitants to open and endovascular re-intervention.
