Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm in patients physically ineligible for open repair: Very long-term follow-up in the EVAR-2 randomized controlled trial
Objective: The aim of the study was to compare long-term total and aneurysm-related mortality in physically frail patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) randomized to either early endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) or no-intervention.
Summary Background Data: EVAR-2 remains the sole randomized trial to identify whether EVAR reduces mortality in patients physically ineligible for open repair.
