Vascular graft surgery. Computer illustration showing the first stage of vascular inlay graft surgery. This procedure is used when the patient has artery aneurysms in larger blood vessels, such as the aorta. The damaged and dilated artery (red) is opened (centre) and a healthy section of another vessel (yellow) is grafted inside to strengthen it. The original vessel is then closed around the graft.
