Short Term and Long Term Outcomes After Endovascular or Open Repair for Ruptured Infrarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in the Vascular Quality Initiative
Repair of ruptured infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA) has shifted from open surgical (OAR) to endovascular (EVAR) over the last decade. However, the long term impact of EVAR vs. OAR for rAAA has not been well described.
Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is preferred to open surgical repair (OSR) for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in high-risk patients. We sought to compare perioperative and long-term outcomes for EVAR in patients designated as unfit for OSR using a large national dataset.
Recent data suggests that infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) endovascular repair (EVAR) with large diameter grafts may have a higher risk of endoleak and reintervention. However, this has not been studied for fenestrated EVAR (FEVAR). We therefore sought to evaluate the outcomes of patients undergoing FEVAR with large-diameter endografts.
Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 339-345 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1714728Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a common, safe, and effective method of treating abdominal aortic aneurysms. Traditionally treated via surgical cutdown over the common femoral arteries, many recent studies demonstrate percutaneous access techniques to avoid the surgical cutdown. Developing familiarity with these percutaneous techniques, including risks, complications, adjuncts, and alternative accesses, can help improve the outcomes and availability of EVAR. As these techniques become increasingly common, it is not unlikely that they can be practice...
This article will provide comprehensive review of a large body of literature comparing endovascular repair to open aortic surgery for the management of AAAs, and it will offer an overview of the open surgical repair technique for AAAs.

Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 356-364 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1715882Endovascular aneurysmal repair (EVAR) has become a prominent modality for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Surveillance imaging is important for the detection of device-related complications, which include endoleak, structural abnormalities, and infection. Currently used modalities include ultrasound, X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and angiography. Understanding the advantages and drawbacks of each modality, as well available guidelines, can guide selection of the appropriate technique for individual patients. We review ...
This study sought to assess the impact of intervention on 1 or both renal arteries on survival for patients undergoing endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA).
Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (EVAR) is more frequently performed than open surgical repair for aneurysms with suitable anatomy. The majority of available EVAR devices are modular bifurcated grafts consisting of an aortic main body with a variable number of iliac or proximal aortic extension components. To date, no large studies evaluating the effect of number of components used on rate of reintervention have been published. We hypothesized that increasing number of components would lead to an overall increase in complications and need for reintervention.
Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has become ubiquitous in the elective treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), but studies suggest women may derive less benefit than men. We investigated whether this sex disparity also exists for outcomes after EVAR for ruptured AAA (rEVAR).
Patients can choose between open (OSR) and endovascular repair (EVR) of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), but the factors associated with patient preference for 1 repair type over another are not well characterized.
This study aims to compare outcomes between percutaneous femoral access and femoral access with cut down for EVAR for rAAA.
