Abstract

There has been much discussion in the literature of factors that affect the mortality rate of patients who undergo repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Some studies have suggested restricting patient selection for repair on the basis of certain preoperative factors including age, increased creatinine level, low hemoglobin level, loss of consciousness, electrocardiographic changes, and preoperative cormorbid medical conditions. A retrospective review of 96 patients who underwent repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm was performed to determine whether these factors would necessarily be applicable to all populations. A retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm was performed over a study period of 20 years. Data was analyzed by both univariate and multivariate analysis. The mean age of the patients was 73 years. The intraoperative mortality rate was 23%. The in-hospital mortality rate was 60.4%, with a 30-day mortality rate of 56.3%. By univariate analysis of various factors associated with the mortality rate, hemoglobin level, creatinine level, lowest preoperative and average intraoperative systolic blood pressure, packed red blood cells transfused, e...Continue Reading

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.
