In the last twenty years, endovascular technology has revolutionized the management of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) because of its less invasiveness.
Endovascular stent grafting is a newer form of treatment for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm that is less invasive than open surgery. Endovascular stent grafting uses an endovascular stent graft to reinforce the wall of the aorta and to help keep the damaged area from rupturing.
The technology has evolved from large profile endoprothesis but requires open-surgery to low profile endoprothesis implantable percutaneously (PEVAR).
Furthermore, the development of different type of endoprothesis and extension has allowed the treatment of more complex abdominal aorta aneurysm. This second websymposium describes the latest low profile endovascular prothesis and its use by our Italian colleagues.

This webinar is an educational event supported by Cordis Corporation, and is intended for Healthcare Professionals in Europe Middle East and Africa.
The use of the INCRAFT® AAA Stent-Graft System requires that physicians be specially trained in endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair techniques, including experience with high resolution fluoroscopy and radiation safety. Cordis Corporation will provide training specific to the INCRAFT® AAA Stent-Graft System.
The INCRAFT® System is currently approved for investigational device use only in the U.S. and Japan and is being studied in a global pivotal clinical study in the U.S. and Japan called the INSPIRATION Trial, which completed enrollment in 2013.’
