Endovascular vs open repair for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm
Journal of Vascular Surgery, 06/05/2012
Nedeau AE et al. – Endovascular repair (EVAR) of rAAA has a superior perioperative survival advantage and decreased morbidity vs OSR. Although not statistically significant, overall survival favors EVAR. They recommend that EVAR be considered as the first–line treatment of rAAAs and practiced as the standard of care.
