Initial Treatment of Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm from the Surgeon’s Perspective


In contrast to elective surgery for infrarenal abdominal aneurysms the mortality rate of ruptured aneurysms has not improved over the years. Own experience and a review of the literature suggest three basic goals for achieving lower mortality: 1. Reducing the time interval between rupture and the surgical control of the bleeding, 2. refraining from reestablishing normal blood pressure by hemodilution, 3. admitting the patient to a competent surgical unit with experience in aortic surgery.
