endovascular stent-graft

Stent graft Heart surgery A prosthetic intravascular graft placed transluminally as an alternative to invasive surgical replacement of an artery with an aneurysmal dilatation; in aneurysms of the thoracic aorta, surgical interposition of a synthetic graft carries a 50% mortality if performed as an emergency procedure, and a 'mere' 12% mortality when performed electively; ESGs are less invasive, less expensive, and have a lower risk than standard operative repair, and are used to treat aneurysms of the abdominal aorta, thoracic aorta, subclavian artery, AV fistula, femoral occlusive disease
