Treatment for Aortic Disease

Aortic problems, such as an aneurysm or a split along your arteries can sometimes be fatal. Our team of experts will guide you through your treatment plan and care. The treatments we offer here at 108 Harley Street Vascular Clinic:

EVAR

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a minimally invasive endovascular procedures that is performed to treat aortic aneurysms (swelling of the main artery). It is performed for aneurysms that involves the abdominal aorta below the branches that supply the kidneys. It involves placement of a stent-graft (a metallic scaffold tube with a fabric cover) through the groin arteries to seal above and below the aortic aneurysm.

EVARs can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.

  

FEVAR

Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) is a minimally invasive endovascular procedures that are performed to treat aortic aneurysms (swelling of the main artery). It  involves placement of a stent-graft (a metallic scaffold tube with a fabric cover) through the groin arteries to seal above and below the aortic aneurysm.

FEVAR is a more complex procedure, involves treating aortic aneurysms that involve the aorta close to its branches that supply the abdominal organs therfore it generally require a general anaesthetic.

TEVAR

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair is a similar minimally invasive procedure used to treat the thoracic aorta for conditions such as aneurysms and aortic dissections (tears in the wall of the main artery). Similar to EVAR and FEVAR this procedure involves placement of a stent-graft in the artery through the groin arteries.
