To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many patients presenting with a large abdominal aortic aneuryism measuring 5.5cm or more across have been treated through (a) endovascular repair and (b) open vascular surgery by the NHS in each of the last five years.
The information is not available in the requested format. NHS Digital is instead able to provide a count of finished admission episodes (FAEs) with a main or secondary procedure of endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), open vascular surgery of AAA and embolisation of a giant (2cm or larger) AAA, 2012-13 to 2016-17.
