    Abstract

    From 1983-1987, 388 patients were operated upon for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Elective operation was performed on 171 patients (44%) with a mortality of 2.9%. Emergency operation was done in 277 patients of whom 132 (34%) had ruptured aneurysms. The mortality for ruptured aneurysms was 36% and 21% for patients operated on as emergencies without signs of rupture of the aneurysm. The five year survival rate was 75% after elective operation, 60% after emergency operation and 40% after operation for ruptured aneurysm. The high mortality after emergency operation for abdominal aortic aneurysm confirms the importance of early diagnosis and elective operation before rupture occurs.
