What are the results of the procedure?

Your doctor will discuss the results of the procedure with you. Endovascular grafting produces very good outcomes. You will need follow-up visits for the stent graft, but most patients live a normal life after the procedure. In general, patients with aneurysms should follow a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and regular exercise. Having an aneurysm increases your risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis, and, along with the aneurysm repair, you should have a full evaluation to assess your risk of these other diseases.
