            Abstract

            The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance on the use of endovascular stent-grafts (EVAR) for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms was published in February 2009.1 This technology appraisal guidance should be read in conjunction with the NICE interventional procedure guidance on stent-graft placement in abdominal aortic aneurysm (interventional procedure guidance 163).2 EVAR is recommended as a treatment option for patients with unruptured infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysms, for whom surgical intervention (open surgical repair or endovascular aneurysm repair) is considered appropriate.
