Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm: six-year follow-up results of a multicenter prospective study. Canadian Society for Vascular Surgery Aneurysm Study Group
On the basis of a prospective analysis of 147 patients undergoing surgery for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and recorded in the Canadian Society for Vascular Surgery Aneurysm Registry, this study defines the early and 6-year actuarial survival rates and determines the predictive variables that are associated with survival. Ongoing follow-up of a cohort of patients was current at the time of analysis. To identify the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative variables that were associated with survival, statistical methods included chi-squared analysis, logistic regression analysis, Kaplan-Meier analysis, and Cox regression analysis. The survival rate was 48.6% at 1 month, 34.7% +/- 4.2% at 3 years, and 22.0% +/- 4.0% at 6 years. When preoperative and intraoperative variables were considered and logistic regression analysis was used, the highest probability of early in-hospital survival was associated with preoperative creatinine levels of 1.3 mg/dl or less, intraoperative urine output of 200 ml or greater, and infrarenal clamp site. The highest probability of late survival, as calculated by the Cox proportional hazards method, was predicted by the patient's age and total urine output during the procedure.

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