Endovascular AAA repair has evolved since its inception in the late 1980s to become an accepted alternative to open surgery.

EVAR carries lower operative risk than the traditional method and recovery times are significantly lower. It has been performed with considerable success in octogenarians and patients with significant comorbidities .
