Abstract

With the advent of endovascular repair of aneurysmal disease, length of hospital stay is becoming shorter. Inherent morbidity and problems associated with open repair have been minimized, leading to an improved patient experience. We describe a fairly typical patient with a popliteal artery aneurysm who would be expected to have a protracted recovery from open resection but instead underwent endovascular repair as an outpatient.
