Abdominal aortic aneurysms are the 13th leading cause of death in the U.S. Often, patients have no idea they have an aneurysm until it’s discovered by their primary care physician – or until it busts.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained vascular surgeons are now offering a new, minimally invasive procedure to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Zenith® Fenestrated AAA Endovascular Graft (z-fen)

The z-fen graft provide a unique endovascular repair option for patients with abdominal aortic or aorto-iliac aneurysms. Each z-fen graft is specially made to fit the patient’s exact anatomy and only requires a small incision in the groin. The results:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Quicker recoveries
  • Prevention of kidney failure in certain patients

GORE® EXCLUDER® Iliac Branched Endoprosthesis

The Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis is an all-in-one system to preserve iliac artery blood flow in patients with iliac or aortoiliac aneurysms, allowing surgeons to better treat a broader range of patients.

In addition to abdominal aneurysms, the UAMS vascular team offers comprehensive open and endovascular treatment for:

  • Thoracic aortic aneurysms & dissections
  • Carotid & Peripheral artery disease
  • Dialysis access
