Thoracic Aortic Endovascular Repair

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is a procedure to treat an aneurysm in the upper part of your aorta. The goal of thoracic aneurysm repair is to prevent the aneurysm from life-threatening rupture. A device called a stent graft is used to strengthen the aneurysm. Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm is uncommon however conceivably deadly. TAAs are serious health risks because, depending on their location and size, the aneurysms may rupture or dissect, causing life-threatening internal bleeding.
