- Endovascular repair compared with surveillance for patients with small abdominal aortic aneurysmsKenneth Ouriel
Division of Vascular Surgery, Columbia University and NewYork Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, USA
J Vasc Surg 51:1081-7. 2010..Endovascular repair has been shown to be safer than open surgical repair in patients with large aneurysms, prompting a randomized trial of early endovascular repair vs surveillance in patients with small aneurysms...
- The PIVOTAL study: a randomized comparison of endovascular repair versus surveillance in patients with smaller abdominal aortic aneurysmsKenneth Ouriel
New York Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, USA
J Vasc Surg 49:266-9. 2009..The primary end points of PIVOTAL are aneurysm rupture and AAA-related death at up to 36 months after randomization. When complete, the results of PIVOTAL should provide objective evidence to guide the use of EVAR for small AAAs...
