About Aortic Stent Grafts
The aorta, the main artery leaving the heart, splits into two iliac arteries that transport blood to the lower extremities. An aneurysm (the weakening and bulging of a blood vessel or artery) directly above the iliac bifurcation is referred to as an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA); one located in the ascending aorta, aortic arch, or the descending thoracic aorta is referred to as a thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA). Stent grafts, tubes composed of fabric supported by a metal mesh, are designed to fasten tightly to the artery above and below the aneurysm. Once in place, blood passes through the stent graft rather than pushing on the bulge of the aneurysm.
