  • Treatment
  • Repair of an AAA may be done in one of two ways: 1-Open repair. For this surgery, your doctor makes a large incision in the abdomen to expose the aorta. Once he or she has opened the abdomen, a graft can be used to repair the aneurysm. 2-Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). This is a minimally invasive option.
