BACKGROUND: We conducted this study to explore the early intervention effects of open repair (OR) and endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) in treating abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients (maximum diameter 40-54 mm).
METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients under 65 years old with maximum AAA diameter 40-54 mm in our hospital from January 2010 to January 2016 (among which there are 38 EVAR cases and 18 OR cases) and compared their short mid-term operation effects.
RESULTS: The time of the operation, bleeding volume and volume of blood transfusion during operation in the EVAR group are significantly lower than those in the OR group; differences are statistically significant (P<0.05). The operation success of the rats in both groups was 100%; the 30-day death rate was 0% and the recurrence rate was 0%; differences are not statistically significant. The total incidence rate of complications in the OR group was 22.2% while it was 5.3% in the EVAR group; differences are statistically significant (χ2=4.114, P=0.043).
CONCLUSIONS: Early intervention (regardless of whether open or endovascular repair is used) is a feasible method for young patients with asymptomatic AAAs of 4.0 cm to 5.5 cm diameter.
