Objective: To examine the incidence of Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) and associated risk factors following abdominal aortic aneurysm repair procedures: Open Aneurysm Repair (OAR) and Endovascular Repair (EVAR).
Methods: We reviewed all patients who underwent elective EVAR and OAR repair from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) from 2005 to 2011. We further analyzed the incidence of DVT according to different risk factors and repair type.
Results: DVT rates were 0.5% (EVAR) and 1.3% (OAR) group with statistical significance (p<0.0001). The analysis also showed many risk factors associated with increased thrombosis as discussed in this paper and some showed to have a protective effect.
Conclusion: Higher incidence of DVT was found in patients who underwent OAR vs. EVAR. It was also found that prolonged hospitalization, infection, and blood transfusions were associated with higher rates of thrombosis. Lower ASA class was a factor associated with lower DVT rate in both repair groups.
