Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms has emerged as a viable alternative to open surgical repair. This procedure will be demanded by physicians and patients because of its lower morbidity and faster recovery. However, its eventual role in the management of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm is likely to be further defined by cost concerns. Currently, endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair is a moving target and thus requires continued analysis of its fiscal impact. Given that it is likely to be a clinically preferable approach, it is important that we explore ways to make it financially viable. Available information on cost of endovascular aneurysm repair is limited; however, cost saving strategies can be developed that will help establish this alternative in the armamentarium of specialists treating patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms.
