Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 68 year old man with significant cardiorespiratory risks factors presented with a ruptured thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA). This was treated by emergency thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) under general anaesthesia (GA). An incidental abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) was not treated. Eight months later, he presented with ruptured AAA. Due to the patient's compromised respiratory system, he underwent endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) under local anaesthesia (LA). He had a smoother post-operation recovery compared to the first repair under GA.
