In brief: Recovery

Endovascular repairs allow people to go home the day after with some soreness in the groins which will take a week or so to go away.
The open surgical repairs leave patients in the hospital 6-8 days, on average, and count on a full month to feel back to full speed.

In brief: Depends

Aaas can be fixed using either an open or endovascular technique.
The open approach will take weeks to recover from while the endovascular approach may only take days to a week. The complexity of the repair and length of hospital stay will influence the recovery as well.

In brief: Few days

If you have an endograft recovery very fast.
I'm an interventional radiologist who places endografts for AAA with a cardiovascular surgeon as a team. Our patients go home in one or two days.
