Patient preferences for alternative surgical techniques for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

This report describes a survey of 237 patients on the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening programmes at two English acute hospital trusts. The survey was used to assess whether patients expressed any preference between the two surgical treatment options: endovascular aneurysm repair and open aneurysm repair. The patients were all male, aged 65 years or over and with an asymptomatic aortic aneurysm of between 4.0 and 5.5cm in diameter.
