SILVEIRA, Denise Rabelo da et al. Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm: prognostic factors. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2005, vol.4, n.4, pp.321-326. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492005000400004.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the prognostic factors related to the mortality of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. METHOD: Seventy-two patients who suffered ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and were operated in the period between 1976 and 2000 by the Vascular Surgery Unit of the Santa Casa de São Paulo - School of Medical Sciences were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS: The descriptive analysis of the data shows a mean age of 67.93 years, with a standard deviation of 11.58, 32% female and 68% male. Of the total number, 28% had a previous history of aneurysm and 72% were not aware of the disease. Mean systolic blood pressure during hospital admission was 96.53 mmHg. Pain was present in 100% of the patients, as well as throbbing abdominal mass. In 93% of the cases the location of the aneurysm rupture was the retroperitoneum, 4% in the duodenum, and 2% in the free peritoneum. CONCLUSION: The prognostic factors related to mortality and morbidity that demonstrated statistical significance were: age, initial blood pressure at hospital admission, diuresis during surgery, volume infused, and creatinine levels.
