Fenestrated Endovascular Aortic Repair (FEVAR)
You need surgery to repair your abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), but you don't need to stay in the hospital and continue recovery for six weeks or more. Consider FEVAR at Carilion Clinic's Aortic Center. This innovative procedure typically has patients out of the hospital and back to normal activity by the next day.
FEVAR is a less invasive complex endovascular abdominal aortic procedure than traditional open AAA repair surgery. This safer surgical care option carries a lower risk of complications and infection for patients. Not all surgeons offer FEVAR. At Carilion Clinic, we do.
The innovative FEVAR procedure is not available everywhere. If your surgeon does not have advanced training and experience with minimally invasive procedures such as FEVAR, consider a second opinion. At Carilion Clinic’s Aortic Center, you have an alternative.
