Importance: Ensuring that patients undergo surveillance imaging after surgery is a key quality metric after many vascular procedures. It is unclear whether hospital participation in a national quality improvement registry such as the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) achieves this goal. Objective: To determine if hospital participation in the VQI registry is associated with increased rates of surveillance imaging after vascular procedures. Design, Setting, and Participants: A quasi-experimental study used Medicare claims to study 2174 US hospitals in which 1 530 102 patients had undergone an endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR), 1 403 067 patients had undergone a lower extremity bypass (LEB) or peripheral vascular intervention (PVI), and 294 942 patients had undergone carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS) procedures between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2012...

BACKGROUND: In some institutions, the current blood ordering practice does not discriminate minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) from open procedures, with consequent increasing costs and likelihood of blood product wastage for EVARs. This limitation in practice can possibly be addressed with the development of a reliable prediction model for transfusion risk in EVAR patients. We used the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) database to create a model for prediction of intraoperative blood transfusion occurrence in patients undergoing EVAR...

INTRODUCTION: and Objectives: Conflicting literature exists regarding resource utilization for cardiovascular care when stratified by provider volume. This study investigates the differences in value of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair by high and low volume providers. The hypothesis of this study is that high volume providers will provide superior value AAA repairs when compared to low volume providers. METHODS: Using the New York Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) database and its linked death database, patients undergoing intact open and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) were identified over a 10-year period...

OBJECTIVE: Preoperative sarcopenia is an established risk factor for poor outcomes after surgery. Methods for assessing sarcopenia are either complex, time consuming, or poorly validated. We aimed to assess the interobserver reliability of scoring psoas area at the level of the L3 vertebra and to evaluate whether sarcopenia scored by this simple and rapid method correlated with other fitness scoring methods or impacted on mortality and duration of stay for patients undergoing endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)...

OBJECTIVE: Preoperative type and cross are often routinely ordered before elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), but the cost of this practice is high, and transfusion is rare. We therefore aimed to stratify patients by their risk of transfusion to identify a cohort in whom a type and screen would be sufficient. METHODS: We queried the targeted vascular module of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) for all elective EVARs from 2011 to 2015...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the risk of postimplantation syndrome associated with endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in patients treated for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). METHODS: From December 2013 to May 2015, 41 AAA patients treated with EVAS (mean age 72±9 years; 38 men) and 63 with EVAR (mean age 74±10 years; 55 men) at a single center were retrospectively reviewed. To control for treatment selection bias, propensity score matching was used to compare outcomes by treatment mode...

BACKGROUND: Current surveillance protocols after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) are ineffective and costly. Stratifying surveillance by individual risk of reintervention requires an understanding of the factors involved in developing post-EVAR complications. This systematic review assessed risk factors for reintervention after EVAR and proposals for stratified surveillance. METHODS: A systematic search according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines was performed using EMBASE and MEDLINE databases to identify studies reporting on risk factors predicting reintervention after EVAR and proposals for stratified surveillance...

BACKGROUND: Although recent guidelines recommend endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for robust younger patients, we have been limiting our indication to older patients or those who are physically frail. This study compares long-term outcomes of our series of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) treated with endovascular repair (ER) and open surgery (OS), using propensity score matching. METHODS: Between June 2007 and October 2014, 819 patients with infrarenal AAA underwent elective repair at our institution...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Fenestrated endovascular repair (FEVAR) has been used to treat complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The risk of renal function deterioration compared with infrarenal endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has not been determined. METHODS: Patients with preserved renal function (estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] > 45 mL/minute) enrolled in two prospective, non-randomised studies evaluating Zenith fenestrated and AAA stent grafts were matched (1:2) by propensity scores for age, sex, hypertension, diabetes, and pre-operative eGFR...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is considered a lower risk option for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms and is of particular utility in patients with poor functional status who may be poor candidates for open repair. However, the specific contribution of preoperative functional status to EVAR outcomes remains poorly defined. We hypothesized that impaired functional status, based simply on the ability of patients to perform activities of daily living, is associated with worse outcomes after EVAR...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with complex abdominal aortic aneurysms are unfit for open repair. New endovascular technologies and bailout techniques are being used for managing these complex anatomies. The purpose of this study is to compare the results obtained with advanced endovascular aneurysm repair (a-EVAR) techniques (fenestrated and chimney endografts) to those obtained with open repair for the treatment of complex abdominal aortic aneurysms not anatomically suitable for standard endovascular exclusion (infrarenal neck <10 mm, juxtarenal, suprarenal and Crawford's type IV thoracoabdominal aneurysms)...

BACKGROUND: No reliable comparative data exist between open repair (OR) and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms (MAAAs). This nationwide study assessed outcomes after OR and EVAR for MAAA in a population-based cohort. METHODS: All patients treated for MAAAs in Sweden between 1994 and 2014 were identified in the Swedish vascular registry. The primary aim was to assess survival after MAAA with OR and EVAR. Secondary aims were analyses of the rate of recurrent infections and reoperations, and time trends in surgical treatment...

BACKGROUND: Hostile anatomic characteristics in patients undergoing endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and the placement of endografts not in concordance with the specific device anatomic guidelines (or instructions for use [IFU]) have shown decreased technical success of the procedure. But these factors have never been evaluated in regard to patient postoperative survival. We sought to assess the association between survival and (1) aneurysm anatomy and characteristics and (2) implantation in compliance with manufacturer's anatomic IFU guidelines in patients undergoing endovascular aortic aneurysm repair...
