Comparative safety of endovascular and open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms in low-risk male patients
Aortic Aneurysm, Abdominal
Blood Vessel Prosthesis Implantation
Our results demonstrate that even among those male patients at low risk for OSR on the basis of comorbidities, EVAR is associated with reduced perioperative mortality and major complications. Whereas clinical decisions must account for safety and long-term effectiveness, the short-term benefit of EVAR is evident even among male patients at the lowest risk for OSR.
