This research is carried out in order to find out the effects of chronic which posed on the recovery after operation of endovascular aneurysm repairing in the method of associational data mining by analyzing the number of days which the patient spending in hospital who had finished the operation of endovascular aneurysm repairing; by the result of this research, we will find out the chronic that can seriously affect the recovery and make it a reference for medical personnel like clinicians so that they can target the chronic preventing the potential harm happening ahead of time. It can also improve the recovery after operation and achieve the goal of reducing days in hospital, as well as the waste of medical resource.
