Minimally Invasive Repair of Ruptured Aortic Aneurysm Could Save More Lives than Surgery
Date:1/18/2010

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are so deadly, they kill 13,000 Americans every year. Minimally invasively emergency repair of ruptured AAA could save more lives in some cases than traditional open surgery, suggests new data. The latest research on AAA is being presented at the 22nd annual International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET).

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) January 18, 2010 -- Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are so deadly, they kill 13,000 Americans every year. Minimally invasively emergency repair of ruptured AAA could save more lives in some cases than traditional open surgery, suggests new data. The latest research on AAA is being presented at the 22nd annual International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET).

AAA is a bulging of the aorta, the body’s largest blood vessel. Eventually, the aneurysm may rupture, causing rapid blood loss and potentially, death.    If detected before it ruptures, an AAA that is two inches or larger can be repaired either surgically or with minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). In an emergency, patients usually undergo open surgical repair, which is a major procedure.

Open surgical repair of an AAA – whether ruptured or not – involves general anesthesia, an up to 12-inch abdominal incision, clamping of the aorta and replacing the enlarged portion of the aorta with a fabric graft.

EVAR involves threading a tube called a catheter through an incision in the groin to the AAA using X-ray guidance. A collapsed stentgraft, called an endograft, is advanced through the catheter and is expanded inside the aneurysm. The blood flow is redirected through the endograft.

Endovascular vs. Surgical Repair of AAA

A study compared the results of 25 patients who underwent EVAR to 33 who underwent open surgery. All 58 patients were determined to be E
