OBJECTIVES: This study was undertaken to evaluate predictors and outcomes of octogenarians who underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. DESIGN: A prospective observational study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1st, 1997 and April 15th, 2005, 31 octogenarians were admitted to our Department with the diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Mean follow-up time was 53.7+/-27.2 months. All patients were in good clinical condition and represented a selected healthy group of octogenarians. RESULTS: The overall perioperative (30-days) mortality rate was 3.1%. The total in-hospital morbidity rate was 22.6%. Overall survival estimates at 48 and 96 months were 81+/-8% and 46+/-21%, respectively. The actuarial freedom from aneurysm-related death at 48 and 96 months was 96+/-4% and 96+/-4%, respectively. The actuarial freedom from aneurysm-unrelated death at 48 and 96 months was 84+/-7% and 48+/-21%. Only coronary artery disease was a significant predictor of survival using multivariate stepwise logistic regression analysis. CONCLUSIONS: In this series, AAA surgery was carried out in selected octogenarians without affecting long-term survival.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: This study was undertaken to evaluate predictors and outcomes of octogenarians who underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. DESIGN: A prospective observational study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1st, 1997 and April 15th, 2005, 31 octogenarians were admitted to our Department with the diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Mean follow-up time was 53.7+/-27.2 months. All patients were in good clinical condition and represented a selected healthy group of octogenarians. RESULTS: The overall perioperative (30-days) mortality rate was 3.1%. The total in-hospital morbidity rate was 22.6%. Overall survival estimates at 48 and 96 months were 81+/-8% and 46+/-21%, respectively. The actuarial freedom from aneurysm-related death at 48 and 96 months was 96+/-4% and 96+/-4%, respectively. The actuarial freedom from aneurysm-unrelated death at 48 and 96 months was 84+/-7% and 48+/-21%. Only coronary artery disease was a significant predictor of survival using multivariate stepwise logistic regression analysis. CONCLUSIONS: In this series, AAA surgery was carried out in selected octogenarians without affecting long-term survival.
