SPI Cannot Be Used to Reliably Predict Sac Growth or Regression

Background: Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become a standard procedure to repair abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). EVAR is performed primarily to decrease the pressure of the aneurysm sac and exclude the sac from the central circulation so it does not rupture. The relationship between sac pressure and postoperative shrinking of the sac is unclear. Objective: To measured the aneurysm sac pressure directly during the EVAR procedure. Methods: Intraoperative sa more...
