In the UKSAT study, long-term survival was initially lower in the early surgery group, but after 8 years long-term survival was higher in the early surgery group, a difference that was attributed in part to the beneficial changes in lifestyle adopted by members of the early surgery group.
The UKSAT trial reported the causes of the 242 deaths in the early surgery group and the 254 in the surveillance group (Table 14).
In both the ADAM and the UKSAT studies, 7% to 9% of patients in the surveillance groups underwent surgical repair of the AAA for indications that did not meet study protocol.
