Özet

Objective: An intervention is recommended in patients, who present with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) of more than 5.5 cm in diameter. Endovascular repair, which has been carried out more than 20 years provides reduced perioperative mortality rates and shorter intensive care and hospital stay, and less bleeding. However, it is not without complications in the short and long term. Vascular complications constitute a major part of them and may contribute to the mortality and mobidity rates. This study aims to evaluate the incidence of vascular complications of Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) in short and long term.
