Merging expertise, the key to boost the clinical outcome in aneurysm treatment
Whether EVAR is useful for the individual patient with an AAA or whether this technique is considered to be a failed experiment is being discussed by respected clinicians and technicians with great passion and even fire. The various guidelines seem to be at odds with each other and also benchtop testing and clinical outcomes are often conflicting. Based on that, what should the clinician say when the patient asks, 'what would you do in my situation, doc’? This theme session sheds light on the future of EVAR from a historical perspective. Will you know what your advice would be to the AAA patient at the end of this session?
