Description

Previous research has indicated that mortality following open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair (OAR) performed at high-volume hospitals is lower than that of OAR performed at low-volume institutions. Expert groups like the Leapfrog Group have advocated for a minimum volume criterion of 50 OAR cases or more per year as part of an evidence-based hospital referral safety standard. However, the effect of hospital volume on elective endovascular AAA repair (EVAR) is currently unclear. There has been a recent push to move AAA repairs to Aortic Centers of Excellence, in which elective AAA patients are triaged to high-volume academic centers. While such initiatives are expected to improve outcomes, it’s important to understand how hospital-level factors may impact postoperative outcomes before this step can be taken.

Objectives

Objective: Discuss the findings of a preliminary analysis that explored the role of specific hospital effects on mortality following open and endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to discuss the findings of a preliminary analysis that explored the role of specific hospital effects on mortality following open and endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
