Abstract

Background:We aim to decrease mortality and morbidity by early diagnosis and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) or by using open surgery.Methods:The patients who had underwent open surgery and EVAR with a diagnosis of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms were evaluated retrospectively. Patients with EVAR were separated as group I and the patients with surgical operations constituted group II. The risk factors, duration of the operation, blood product usage, drainage amounts, complications, mortality, and morbidity rates were evaluated.Results:The duration of the operation and the required blood and blood products were lower in group I (P < .05). There is no any significant difference between the groups in terms of mortality, complications, short-, and long-term results.Conclusion:We support the idea that better results can be obtained by showing regard to suitable patient, suitable clinical condition, and suitable anatomy together with the correct choice of operation type.
