BACKGROUND Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR) repair has become a well-established technique in the treatment of elective abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) due to proven benefits in mortality, hospital stay and operation time compared to open repair. The aim of this study was to estimate the mortality rate from EVAR due to ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA). METHODS AND MATERIALS A systematic review and meta-analysis of all English language literature with information on… CONTINUE READING
