Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is the dominant treatment strategy for abdominal aortic aneurysms. However, as a result of uncertainty regarding long-term durability, an ongoing imaging surveillance program is required. The aim of the study was to assess EVAR surveillance in Scotland and its effect on all-cause and aneurysm-related mortality. A retrospective analysis of all EVAR procedures carried out in the four main Scottish vascular units. The primary outcome measure was the… CONTINUE READING
