BACKGROUND Although transfemoral endovascular aneurysm management (TEAM) of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is widely performed, open graft replacement is still considered the standard of care. The aim of this study was to investigate whether clear indications for TEAM can be established in patients with significant comorbidities without investigating differences in relative procedure efficacy or durability.
