Endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms


Veith, Frank Junior; Lachat, Mario L; Mayer, Dieter; Rancic, Zoran; Berland, Todd L; Cayne, Neal S (2013). Endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. In: Gabriel, Edmo Atique; Gabriel, Sthefano Atique. Inflammatory Response in Cardiovascular Surgery. London: Springer, 73-75.

Abstract

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAAs) are being treated by endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and other endovascular techniques with increasing frequency. The endovascular procedures offer many potential advantages over open repair (OR). They are less invasive, eliminate damage to periaortic and abdominal structures, decrease bleeding from surgical dissection, minimize hypothermia, and lessen the requirement for deep anesthesia.
