The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of recent chemotherapy (Chx) on outcome of aorto-iliac aneurysm (AAA) repair. The 2005-2010 American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database was queried to identify vascular patients undergoing AAA repair within 30 days after Chx. Seventy-one patients underwent AAA repair within 30 days of receiving Chx, group A (71 ± 8.4 years, 77.5% males) and 20,024 patients underwent AAA repair without prior Chx, group B (73 ± 9 years, 79.2% males). The two groups did not significantly differ with respect to open or endovascular repair (open repair A: 32%, B: 35%, P = 0.66). However, patients in group A presented more often as emergent cases (A: 27%, B: 12%, P = 0.001). Multivariable regression analysis for emergent cases after adjustment for relevant confounders also demonstrated that patients with recent Chx present more often as emergency (P = 0.001, odds ratio [OR]: 2.4). Thirty-day non-surgical complications were more common in group A (A: 25%, B: 16.5%, P = 0.046) while surgical complications were equivalent (A: 15.5%, B: 12.3%, P = 0.414). Risk of death was significantly higher in group A in univariate analysis (A: 13%, B: 5%, P = 0.005, OR: 2.6). Patients who receive Chx within 30 days prior to AAA repair present more frequently as emergencies leading to higher mortality. The reason for this cannot be sufficiently explained by the current database but patient selection for elective repair or the effect of Chx on the natural course of AAA may play a role.
