Aortic endografts are a popular alternative to open surgery as a treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) . However, device migration often occurs if the endograft is inadequately fixed. This is due, among other factors, to the time-varying loads exerted by pulsatile flow and pressure in the aorta. Improper fixation may lead to adverse clinical events such as endoleaks and ruptures.
