  • For intact AAA, the surgeon's volume was an important factor for OSR outcomes, whereas low facility volume was associated with worse outcomes after EVAR. For ruptured AAA, low-volume surgeons and low-volume facilities had worse outcomes after OSR but not after EVAR. The interaction between the surgeon's volume and the hospital's volume is complex and varies on the basis of the acuity of presentation and treatment modality.
