The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) in nonagenarians. From May 2003 to March 2011, 12 nonagenarian abdominal aortic aneurysm patients were treated with endovascular repair including two emergencies. The mean age of patients was 92.5 ± 1.6 years (range: 90-95 years), and 11 of the patients (91.7%) were men. Technical success, perioperative complications, and mortality were evaluated.
