Open stent grafts provide a minimally invasive option for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms that occur above the kidneys. Learn how this works.
Treating aneurysms can require surgery, but, as this video illustrates, now a minimally invasive technique uses a wire stent coated in polyester to repair some abdominal aortic aneurysms without invasive surgery.
