Image: PD 1. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and open repair (OR) repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) do not have significantly different 30-day mortality rates.  2. EVAR leads to significantly less renal insufficiency, possibly due to lack of suprarenal clamping.  Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)  Study Rundown: Ruptured AAAs require immediate surgical...
Image: PD 1. The EVAR II trial compared endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with no intervention in patients unsuitable for the open procedure. 2. There were significantly fewer aneurysm-related deaths in the endovascular group, compared to no intervention. 3. The rates of complication and reintervention were similar to the rates observed in...
Image: PD 1. The EVAR I trial compared the safety and efficacy of endovascular and open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair 2. There were no significant differences in all-cause mortality between the two groups. 3. The endovascular group experienced significantly higher rates of graft-related complications and reinterventions. Original Date of Publication: May 20, 2010 The...
