ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a clinical study according to which endovascular and open repair did not differ for mortality rates at 2 years in abdominal aortic aneurysm. The study explored that in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, how does elective endovascular repair compare with conventional open repair? Endovascular and open repair did not differ for rates of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular-related mortality, or aneurysm-related noncardiovascular mortality, or for the rate of survival free of moderate or severe complications. In patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, elective endovascular repair and conventional open repair did not differ for rates of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular-related mortality, or aneurysm-related noncardiovascular mortality at 2 years.
