BACKGROUND Randomized trials have shown reductions in perioperative mortality and morbidity with endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, as compared with open surgical repair. Longer-term survival rates, however, were similar for the two procedures. There are currently no long-term, population-based data from the comparison of these strategies. METHODS We studied perioperative rates of death and complications, long-term survival, rupture, and reinterventions after open as compared… Expand
Inferior Mid-Term Durability with Comparable Survival for Younger Patients Undergoing Elective Endovascular Infrarenal vs. Open Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair.
TLDR
A retrospective review of younger patients undergoing elective AAA repair demonstrated no significant differences in perioperative mortality or survival over time between EVAR and OSR. Expand
Outcomes after endovascular versus open thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair: A population-based study.
TLDR
Endovascular repair was associated with improved early outcomes but higher rates of secondary procedures after discharge, and long-term survival after thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair is poor and independent of repair technique. Expand
Design of The PReferences for Open Versus Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (PROVE-AAA) Trial.
TLDR
A cluster-randomized trial is described to test if a decision aid can better align patients' preferences and their treatment type for AAA to better understand the factors that affect patient preference when choosing between EVAR and OSR. Expand
Five-year results of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with the Ovation abdominal stent graft.
TLDR
This analysis of the ENCORE database demonstrates that EVAR with the Ovation platform has favorable midterm durability evidenced by successful aneurysm exclusion and 5-year freedom from aneurYSm-related mortality. Expand
Outcomes of the Repair of 1000 Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in the Endovascular Era.
TLDR
The EVAR group had a higher prevalence of smokers, and the OS group showed a greater prevalence of chronic ischemia of the lower extremities, but this difference was not significative in the multivariable analysis. Expand
Midterm survival after endovascular repair of intact abdominal aortic aneurysms is improving over time.
TLDR
Four-year survival improved in more recent years after EVAR but not after open repair, suggesting that midterm outcomes after EVar are improving, information that should be considered by surgeons and policymakers alike in evaluating the value of contemporary EVAR and open AAA repair. Expand
Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair is associated with lower perioperative morbidity and mortality compared with open repair for complex abdominal aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
ZFEN is associated with lower perioperative morbidity and mortality compared with open complex AAA repair, and outcomes are comparable to those of infrarenal EVAR, a nationwide multicenter registry of patients undergoing elective AAA repair between 2012 and 2016. Expand
The Variable Impact of Aneurysm Size on Outcomes After Open Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repairs.
TLDR
The association between AAA size and outcomes matters less with renal and visceral artery aneurysmal involvement, having important implications for surgical decision-making, operative planning, and patient counseling. Expand
Similar 5-year outcomes between female and male patients undergoing elective endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with the Ovation stent graft.
TLDR
Female patients undergoing EVAR with the Ovation platform presented with substantially more adverse proximal neck characteristics, and 5-year freedom from endoleaks and overall survival did not differ between sexes. Expand
Cost-effectiveness analysis of endovascular versus open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm in a high-volume center.
TLDR
EVAR is cost-effective with improved cost per QALY compared with OSR, and an audit of interventions that had already taken place found no association between procedure and improvement in all-cause mortality, QALys, costs, or cost perQALY. Expand

Two-year outcomes after conventional or endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms
TLDR
The perioperative survival advantage with endovascular repair as compared with open repair is not sustained after the first postoperative year, with no significant difference in subsequent aneurysm-related mortality. Expand
A randomized trial comparing conventional and endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
Endovascular repair is preferable to open repair in patients who have an abdominal aortic aneurysm that is at least 5 cm in diameter and long-term follow-up is needed to determine whether this advantage is sustained. Expand
Perioperative outcomes after open and endovascular repair of intact abdominal aortic aneurysms in the United States during 2001.
TLDR
Endovascular repair of intact AAAs results in a significantly lower number of complications and deaths, shorter hospital stay, and improved likelihood of discharge to home, even in older patients, when compared with open surgical repair. Expand
Comparison of endovascular aneurysm repair with open repair in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR trial 1), 30-day operative mortality results: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
In patients with large AAAs, treatment by EVAR reduced the 30-day operative mortality by two-thirds compared with open repair, and any change in clinical practice should await durability and longer term results. Expand
Improving aneurysm-related outcomes: nationwide benefits of endovascular repair.
TLDR
EVAR is responsible for overall decrease in operative mortality even in ruptured aneurysms while decreasing utilization variables, and is replacing open surgery without an increase in overall case volume. Expand
Graft-related complications after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: reassurance from a 36-year population-based experience.
TLDR
This 36-year population-based study confirms that the vast majority of patients who undergo standard surgical repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm remain free of any significant graft-related complication during their remaining lifetime. Expand
Durability of open repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm: a 15-year follow-up study.
TLDR
Open repair of infrarenal AAAs can achieve satisfactory 15-year follow-up rates of survival free from reintervention for any graft-related complications, suggesting that surgery should still be considered the procedure of choice for infra Renal AAAAs, at least in patients who are fit for surgery. Expand
Life expectancy after endovascular versus open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: results of a decision analysis model on the basis of data from EUROSTAR.
TLDR
Decision analysis suggests that OPEN may be preferred for younger patients with low operative risk and ENDO may be Preferred for older patients with higher operative risk, but given the similarity in overall outcome, patient preference should be weighed heavily in decision making. Expand
Trends, complications, and mortality in peripheral vascular surgery.
TLDR
Dramatic shifts in the management of peripheral vascular disease have occurred together with an overall decline in mortality, and there seems to be a significant mortality advantage for endovascular as compared with traditional surgery except for carotid endarterectomy. Expand
Transfemoral intraluminal graft implantation for abdominal aortic aneurysms
TLDR
Experiments showed that when a balloon-expandable stent was sutured to the partially overlapping ends of a tubular, knitted Dacron graft, friction seals were created which fixed the ends of the graft to the vessel wall, which excludes the aneurysm from circulation and allows normal flow through the graft lumen.
