          Elective abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is a prophylactic intervention to prevent AAA rupture. The development of modern surgical treatment of AAA began with the first reports of open aneurysm repair (OAR) with homografts in the early 1950s. Although it was recognised early that AAA diameter was directly correlated with rupture risk (RR), it was not until the 1970s when the first reports came suggesting that an aneurysm diameter above five cm seemed to be the pivot point for this risk. These data were primarily based on small case series and autopsy reports from pioneers, and, in the decades that followed, it remained debated what the optimal size threshold for AAA repair actually was.
