Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a procedure which requires only small incisions in the groin, along with the use of x-ray guidance and specially-designed instruments, to repair the aneurysm by inserting a tube, called a stent-graft, inside the aorta.
EVAR is a minimally-invasive (without a large abdominal incision) procedure.
