Lack of major gender-related differences in patients undergoing elective endovascular or surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm


Van Der Loo, B; Naef, F; Spring, S; Rousson, V; Amann-Vesti, B; Koppensteiner, R (2009). Lack of major gender-related differences in patients undergoing elective endovascular or surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm. International Angiology, 28(1):50-55.

Abstract

AIM: The aim of this single center retrospective study was to determine gender-related differences in patients undergoing repair of aortic aneurysm. METHODS: A total of 296 consecutive patients with an abdominal aneurysm undergoing elective endovascular or surgical repair was included in the study. Among these, 24 (8.1%) were females and 272 (91.9%) were males. Demographic and clinical characteristics as well as laboratory values in terms of any potential gender-specific differences were compared. RESULTS: Females were significantly older at the time of repair than males. No gender-related differences were found analysing major clinical and laboratory parameters. CONCLUSIONS: The clinical and laboratory profile with which males and females present at the time of elective endovascular or surgical repair for aortic aneurysm is very similar. It does not reveal any potential gender-specific risk constellation. It eventually remains unclear why the prevalence of aortic aneurysm is higher in male than in females.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
