Technologies scoping report 3 

Is there a difference in operative mortality between endovascular aneurysm repair and open surgery in elective abdominal aortic aneurysm?

In response to an enquiry from the vascular services review steering group

The following questions were scoped:

1. In elective AAA repair, what is the clinical effectiveness of EVAR compared with OSR in terms of operative mortality?

2. In elective AAA repair, what is the cost effectiveness of EVAR compared with OSR ?

The content of this technologies scoping report was accurate and based upon the most up to date evidence available at the date of first publication. Readers are asked to consider that new trials and technologies may have emerged since first publication and the evidence presented may no longer be current.
