title = "Off-the-shelf options for juxtarenal and pararenal aortic aneurysm",
abstract = "In patients unsuitable for standard, infrarenal endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) due to an inadequate or inappropriate infrarenal neck, various options have been proposed to achieve a suitable endovascular repair. The primary objective in this setting is to move the endograft sealing zone to a healthier, more cranial segment of the aorta. The need for a solution for problematic proximal neck anatomy in an urgent fashion, can be heightened in the setting of extremely large or symptomatic aneurysms. Chimney techniques and physician modified stent-grafts are transitional techniques utilizing standard endovascular inventory to treat complex aneurysms. However, development of off-the-shelf stent-grafts to accommodate for the majority off pararenal aneurysms is rapidly increasing and the initial clinical experience is promising.",
