Matched-pair analysis of endovascular versus open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms in young patients at low risk.

PURPOSE To compare clinical outcomes of endovascular and open aortic repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in young patients at low risk. It was hypothesized that endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) compares favorably with open aneurysm repair (OAR) in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients aged 65 years or younger with a low… CONTINUE READING
