Minimally invasive aneurysm repair, with guest Wei Li, MD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

FEVAR procedure corrects dangerous weakening of main artery

A dangerous ballooning of the body's main artery can be repaired -- and a rupture prevented -- by a less invasive method than has been traditionally used. Abdominal aortic aneurysms are being treated with this new procedure by Wei Li, MD, a vascular surgeon who recently returned to Upstate, where he trained as a surgeon. He explains the FEVAR operation, which repairs the aorta, and its benefits.
