Abstract

Background. Should abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) be electively repairedin octogenarians? Methods. This was a retrospective review of patients' charts over a ten-year period starting in January 1995. This study was conducted at St. FrancisHospital, Roslyn, New York, which is a tertiary referral center. All octogenarians who underwent AAA repair (elective and emergent) were included in this study (mean age 82.9 years). A total of 71 such patients were identified. Sixty-two patients had elective surgery and nine patients had emergent repair of the ruptured AAA. It was hypothesized before the study was conducted that AAA could be repaired in octogenarians with acceptable morbidity and mortality in an institution with vast experience in dealing with this disease. Results. The mean aneurysm diameter was 6.73 cm. Twenty patients (28%) received bifurcated grafts, while 51 patients (72%) received tubular grafts. Four patients had coronary artery bypass graft before aneurysm surgery. Forty-four patients (62%) were male and 27 (38%) were female. The thirty day mortality rate after elective AAA repair was 1.4%, whereas after the repair of ruptured aneurysms was 44.4%. Conclusions. We concluded that the elective repair of abdominal aneurysms in most octogenarians is a safe and life-prolonging procedure if performed in an experienced tertiary center.
