Abstract
Your surgeon will put an endovascular stent graft into your aorta. The aorta is the biggest artery in your body. Different diseases may affect your aorta. Your aorta needs to be repaired so it does not rupture (break) and cause severe (very bad) bleeding. This can lead to death. There are 2 ways to repair your aorta: TEVAR where the surgeon places a stent graft through a small incision in your groin, or through open repair where the surgeon makes a large incision through your breastbone and potentially down to your belly depending on the extent of your aneurysm. TEVAR surgery is an alternative to open surgery. The pamphlet outlines the benefits of TEVAR compared to open repair, and possible complications of this surgery. Your care before and after surgery and at home is outlined. Information about a healthy lifestyle is provided. Symptoms that need to be checked by your primary health care provider right away are noted as well as information about followup appointments.
