To collect and analyze clinical follow-up data which can be used to assess the safety,
efficacy, and durability of endovascular AAA repair with Zenith and Chuter-Gianturco
We propose to analyze the data collected for clinical purposes in 453 patients who already
underwent endovascular AAA repair at UCSF and SFVA, and others who will undergo this
operation in the future. Most of these patients have now passed the 2-year follow-up
required by the original protocol, all continue to be followed for clinical purposes, using
the same studies, the same data forms and the same schedule as before, because studies of
various devices of this type have shown that the potential for late problems requires
continuing scrutiny of stent-graft structure and function, as a basis for timely
