EVAR and complex anatomy: an update on fenestrated and branched stent grafts.

Abstract
Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) offers a minimally invasive treatment to patients with improved short-term and similar mid-term results compared to conventional, open repair (OR). EVAR is preferred by patients due to the reduction of surgical trauma. Approximately 20% of patients have aneurysm neck morphology which is inadequate for a standard stent graft and requires the endograft to cross vital aortic side branches to achieve a seal. This chapter describes the evolution of three types of devices, namely the fenestrated and branched stent grafts as well as the chimney grafts. These stent grafts incorporate vital aortic side branches in the repair, thereby increasing the applicability of EVAR which may improve the overall results.
