Brief description Once present, abdominal aortic aneurysms tend to enlarge over time resulting in an increased risk of death if they rupture. Endovascular aneurysm repair may be used to fix the aneurysm but this procedure can result in complications over time. We developed a model that uses pre-operative information to predict the chance of an individual having poor results.This study aims to assess whether the model is a good predictor of outcomes and whether extra information will improve its accuracy.
