Logistic considerations for a successful institutional approach to the endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms


Mayer, D; Rancic, Z; Pfammatter, T; Hechelhammer, L; Veith, F J; Donas, K; Lachat, M (2010). Logistic considerations for a successful institutional approach to the endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Vascular, 18(2):64-70.

Abstract

The value of emergency endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in the setting of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm remains controversial owing to differing results. However, interpretation of published results remains difficult as there is a lack of generally accepted protocols or standard operating procedures. Furthermore, such protocols and standard operating procedures often are reported incompletely or not at all, thereby making interpretation of results difficult. We herein report our integrated logistic system for the endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Important components of this system are prehospital logistics, in-hospital treatment logistics, and aftercare. Further studies should include details about all of these components, and a description of these logistic components must be included in all future studies of emergency EVAR for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms.
