DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2012-32983 Objective: Abdominal aortic aneurysm can be repaired using open surgical techniques as well as endovascular techniques. We aimed to present six months follow up of the cases with endovascular aortic repair. Material and Methods: Eighteen patients who had endovascular aortic aneurysm repair between May 2010-2012 in our clinic were included in study. Patients were evaluated at first and six month controls for endoleak. Among patients 38.9% were diabetic (n:7), 77.8% were hypertensive (n14), 55.6% had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (n:10), 16.7% had malignancy (n:3), 22.2% had coronary artery disease (n:4), and 1 patient had abdominal surgery due to peritonitis. Results: Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) was applied to 18 patients ( 14 males; 4 females). The mean age was 72.77±6.54 (62-82) years. There were no mortality at six months follow up and one patient had endoleak. Conclusion: EVAR is a safe and useful treatment method for high risk surgical patients (elderly, comorbidity, prior abdominal surgery) and can be performed with low mortality and morbidity. Long term follow up studies are required for definite results. Keywords : Endovascular procedures; aortic aneurysm, abdominal; mortality; morbidity
