The importance of anatomical suitability and fitness for the outcome of endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.


INTRODUCTION Endovascular repair of aortic aneurysm (EVAR) has a lower mortality than open repair. The aim of this study was to assess mortality from EVAR for emergency AAA repair and the impact of fitness for operation and adverse anatomy. METHODS One-hundred and forty two patients who had EVAR for a ruptured AAA (80, REVAR) or a symptomatic AAA (62… (More)
