Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Side Effects of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

The main side effect of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair is the discomfort following surgery. Following an open repair, the abdominal incision is sore for a few days. Medications may be administered to help alleviate pain. The minimally invasive endovascular procedure (EVAR) generally results in less pain and a faster recovery than the open method. Moving comfortably is difficult at first, but tenderness usually subsides within a few days.
