This procedure is less invasive than the open abdominal repair. Rather than opening the abdomen to access the aorta directly, the surgeon will make an incision in each side of the groin. Through these incisions, the surgeon accesses the aorta through the femoral arteries and moves a graft or patch into the affected area. The average hospital stay following this procedure is three days. Please note not all patients will meet the criteria for this procedure.
