N Engl J Med 346:1437, 2002. Ruptured AAA Triad (50%): Sudden onset abdominal pain Pulsatile mass Hypotension
Slide 6 - Imaging Incidental, ultrasound, CT angiogram and angiogram
Slide 7 - Diagnosis Physical exam Firm, pulsatile abdominal mass Overall sensitivity of 52% Sensitivity increases with diameter 29% for 3.0 to 3.9cm 50% for 4.0-4.9 cm 76% for > 5.0 cm Extension into iliac arteries is not appreciated X-ray About 70% of cases Characteristic eggshell pattern of calcification Accurate determination of size difficult Negative AXR does NOT rule out diagnosis Ultrasound Most widely used noninvasive test Provides structural detail of vessel wall Can accurately measure the size in longitudinal and cross sectional directions Advantages Noninvasive, low cost, wide availability Good for initial evaluation or pts, screening and surveillance
Slide 8 - Diagnosis CT Most precise test for imaging AAA Can identify Proximal and distal extent of aneurysm, including thoracic portion Occlusive aneurysmal disease Presence of multiple and accessory renal arteries Seize of aortic lumen, amount of thrombus, and presence of calcific disease MRI Imaging of choice for patients with renal insufficiency High quality images of aorta However, less sensitive in identifying accessory renal arteries or renal artery stenosis Arteriography Reliable information on size of aortic lumen and branch vessel disease However, due to thrombus, aortic lumen is near normal in size so inaccurate assessment of size or aneurysm Helpful for assessment of associated arterial disease in pre-op eval

Slide 14 - Rupture Repair – EVAR is superior 30 day mortality EVAR 19%, Open 47% LOS EVAR 6, Open 18.5 D/C to home EVAR 55%, open 20% Major complication EVAR 36%, Open 80% OR time EVAR 3 hours, Open 4.5 hours Blood loss EVAR 200 cc, Open 4 liters
Slide 15 - Treatment Joint Council of the American Association for Vascular Surgery and Society for Vascular Surgery (Brewster DC, Cronenwett JL, Hallett JW, et al. Vasc Surg 37:1106, 2003) 1.   The arbitrary setting of a single threshold diameter for elective AAA repair that is applicable to all patients is not appropriate, as the decision for repair must be individualized in each case.   2.   Randomized trials have shown that the risk of rupture of small (<5 cm) AAAs is quite low and that a policy of careful surveillance up to a diameter of 5.5 cm is safe, unless rapid expansion (>1 cm/y) or symptoms develop. However, early surgery is comparable to surveillance with later surgery, so patient preference is important, especially for AAAs 4.5 to 5.5 cm in diameter.   3.   Based upon the best available current evidence, a diameter of 5.5 cm appears to be an appropriate threshold for repair in an "average" patient. However, subsets of younger, low-risk patients with long projected life expectancy may prefer early repair. If the surgeon's personal documented operative mortality rate is low, repair may be indicated at smaller sizes (4.5 to 5.5 cm) if that is the patient's preference.
Slide 16 - 4.   For women, or AAAs with greater-than-average rupture risk, 4.5 to 5.0 cm is an appropriate threshold for elective repair.   5.   For high-risk patients, delay in repair until larger diameter is warranted, especially if endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is not possible.    6.   In view of its uncertain long-term durability and effectiveness, as well as the increased surveillance burden, EVAR is most appropriate for patients at increased risk for conventional open aneurysm repair.   7.   EVAR may be the preferred treatment method if anatomy is appropriate for older, high-risk patients, those with "hostile" abdomens, or other clinical circumstances likely to increase the risk of conventional open repair.   8.   Use of EVAR in patients with unsuitable anatomy markedly increases the risk of adverse outcomes, the need for conversion to open repair, or AAA rupture.    9.   At present, there does not appear to be any justification that EVAR should change the accepted size thresholds for intervention in most patients.   10.  In choosing between open repair and EVAR, patient preference is of great importance. It is essential that the patients be well informed to make such choices.
Slide 17 - Surgery Open repair with synthetic graft 35% of current cases Primarily for poor anatomy Ocassionally young age Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) 65% of current cases
Slide 18 - Anatomic Requirements for EVAR Anatomic Criteria Length, angulation, and diameter of infrarenal neck > 60° neck angulation – 70% complication rate Minimum adequate length is 8 mm Desireable length is 1.5 cm Iliac artery diameter Large enough to accommodate device (7 mm) Small enough to allow device to seal (1.5 cm) Concurrent common or internal iliac artery aneurysm Can be difficult to manage Absence of thrombus at aortic neck Thrombus does not allow for a good neck seal
Slide 19 - Standard Open Repair
Slide 20 - Complications of Open Repair Mortality rate less than 5% in good risk pts Most frequent cause of death is ischemic myocardial injury Complications following elective open repair occur in 10-30% of cases Most frequent complication is nonfatal MI (avg. 6.9%) usually within first 48 hours post-op Renal failure (6%) Pneumonia (5%) Bleeding Ileus Ischemia of left colon and rectum Lower extremity ischemia from embolization of thrombus or atherosclerotic plaque Ischemic injury to lumbosacral plexus or to the spinal cord Post-op sexual dysfunction from injury to autonomic nerves during dissection (up to 25% of patients) DVT in as many as 18% of patients
Slide 21 - Complications of Open Repair Late complications after successful repair are rare Only occurs in about 7% of patients, but Late complications more common in repair of rupture (17%) Complications include: Anastomic pseudoaneurysm (3%) Graft thrombosis (2%) Graft-enteric erosion or fistula (1.6%) Graft infection (1.3%) Anastomotic hemorrhage (1.3%) Colonic ischemia (0.7%) Atheroembolism (0.3%)

Slide 33 - Potential Drawbacks of EVAR Need for frequent CT scans/follow up 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, one year and every year thereafter 90 % efficacious at 6 year mark Need for conversion Late rupture rate Up to 25% of patients need reintervention within the first year
Slide 34 - Complication of EVAR: Endoleaks Type I: Lack of complete seal between stent graft and vessel wall at attachment sites Type II: Back filling of the aneurysm sac via such branch vessels as the lumbar of inferior mesenteric arteries Type III: Leaks at connections of modular components, device disruption, fabric tears Type IV: Extravasation of contrast material through interstices in the grafted artery White GH, May J, Waugh RC, et al. J Endovasc Surg 1998;5:189–193.

N Engl J Med 2005;352:2398–2405. Evaluation of perioperative period Cumulative survival rate were similar (89.6% vs. 89.7%) EVAR had lower aneurysm-related death (2.1% vs. 5.7%)
Slide 39 - Dutch Randomized Endovascular Management Trial (DREAM) 30 day mortality was better in EVAR group (1.2% vs.. 4.6%) EVAR group showed less operative mortality and post-op complications (4.7% vs.. 9.8%) No overall survival difference at 2 years Aneurysm related death less in EVAR group (2.1% vs.. 5.7%)
Slide 40 - Endovascular Aneurysm Repair Trial -1 (EVAR-1) Short term survival benefit of EVAR 30 day mortality rate 1.7% vs.. 4.7% At 4 years, no difference in mortality Aneurysm related death less in EVAR group (4% vs.. 7%) Greater post-op complications over 4 year follow-up in the EVAR group (41% vs. 9%) No difference in quality of life Hospital costs higher in EVAR group
Slide 41 - EVAR-2 Trial Looked at effectiveness of EVAR in high risk patients Compared EVAR to observation No benefit of EVAR over observation 30 day mortality rate after EVAR was 9% 4 year mortality rate in EVAR group 64% No difference in late overall mortality No difference in aneurysm related mortality Higher hospital costs in EVAR group No health-related quality of life benefit to EVAR
