MENEZES, Fábio Hüsemann; LUCCAS, George Carchedi  e  MATSUI, Irene Akie. Late survival of patients submitted to elective abdominal aortic aneurysm open repair. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.3, pp.218-224. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000300004.

BACKGROUND:The authors performed a review of patients who underwent surgery at a community hospital to determine the cause of late mortality, evolution of other aortic segments and graft-related complications. OBJECTIVES: To report the late follow-up of a series of 76 patients submitted to elective abdominal aortic aneurysm open repair from March 1995 to January 2007. METHODS: Recruitment of patients for a follow-up visit; those who could not attend personally were contacted by telephone. RESULTS: Thirty-day operative mortality was 5.3%. Late survival obtained by life table was 95% in 1 year, 88% in 3 years and 72% in 8 years. Cardiovascular diseases were the main cause of late mortality, followed by malignant neoplasia. Dilatation of proximal aortic segment during follow-up occurred in 9.7% of the patients, and graft-related complications occurred in four cases (5.3%): one graft infection, one proximal pseudoaneurysm, one pseudoaneurysm of the iliac artery and one branch occlusion. CONCLUSION: Open surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair has good long-term outcome, similar to that in the national and international literature, and is a good option for patients who have a low surgical risk.
