Long-term survival and secondary procedures after open or endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Randomized trials have shown an initial survival benefit of endovascular over conventional open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair but no long-term difference up to 6 years after repair. Longer follow-up may be required to demonstrate the cumulative negative impact on survival of higher reintervention rates associated with endovascular repair… (More)
