Introduction. Minimally invasive management of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) by endovascular stent-grafting provides an alternative to conventional surgery in selected patients. Study objective. The aims of the study were to assess the efficacy of elective endoluminal exclusion -of AAA in high-risk patients by insertion of a self-expanding, modular, bifurcated endovascular stent-graft system (AneuRx). Design. Open, controlled, prospective study. Patients who underwent conventional repair served as controls and reflected the current standard of care.
