At the annual meeting of the Vascular Section of the Scandinavian Surgical Society in 1993 it was decided to discuss standards for quality in vascular surgery. This article is discussing operations for abdominal aortic aneurysms with special reference to early mortality and complications like graft infection and aortoenteric fistula. The discussion is based on national vascular registers and investigations on vascular surgical activity in the Scandinavian countries. In addition, a survey of the literature is given. Although these data should be regarded as a guide-line only, we feel that one should try to keep the 30 day mortality following elective resection for asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysm below 5-7 per cent. A mortality less than 50-60 per cent following operation for ruptured aneurysm may be regarded as reasonable. Patient-selection regarding age, concomitant disease etc. could significantly influence these results, and should be taken into consideration when comparison between different series is made. Graft infection is a serious complication and if the frequency is higher than 2 per cent, or there is an accumulation of graft infections in a vascular centre, the hospital routines should be reviewed carefully. The occurrence of infection is higher following operations for ruptured aneurysms than following elective operations. Early operations for haemorrhage and early occlusion should be below 5-6 per cent. Some authors have shown a correlation between the volume of operation, postoperative mortality and the frequency of complications. We therefore think that it might be reasonable to suggest that at least patients who have concomitant diseases like serious coronary heart disease or renal insufficiency should be operated on in vascular centres.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
