About

This is a 2-group study comparing the effect of a "prehabilitation" program to usual care on quality of life and clinical outcomes in patients undergoing elective repair of their thoracic aorta.

Full description

Patients undergoing elective repair of their thoracic aortic aneurysm will be randomized to a "prehabilitation" program prior to their surgery or to usual care. The prehabilitation program is self-directed program designed to improve health and quality of life prior to surgery. The program is currently offered to general surgery patients; this study will examine the feasibility and acceptability of such a program in a different patient population.
