Percutaneous access versus standard femoral exposure for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: a randomized, controlled trial

Tello Díaz, Cristina
The treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has shifted from the exposure of the aorta artery in an open repair technique to a small groin cut in an endovascular repair. Recently, a percutaneous access for endovascular repair has appeared. This new technique aims to minimize the complications of the common femoral artery exposure, the patient discomfort and the length of hospitalization Objectives: To compare the proportion of discharged patients within the first 48 postoperative hours of two common femoral artery accesses for endovascular repair of AAA: the open exposure technique and the percutaneous technique. Secondary objectives include to evaluate the total procedure time, the femoral access complications, the need for extra analgesia and the patient satisfaction and groin discomfort of the two techniques Design: Randomized controlled trial conducted between 2014 and 2017 Participants: Patients diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysm with elective endovascular repair indication ​
