The preferred method to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) is endovascular repair with a stent-graft (EVAR). Although EVAR is fairly successful, there are several challenges to address, which include patient ineligibility due to complex anatomy and long-term failure due to migration and endoleak. Drug treatments that reduce or halt AAA growth are also currently under investigation .
