Abstract

Long-term survival was assessed after the repair of non-ruptured (n = 311) and ruptured (n = 227) abdominal aortic aneurysm. Follow-up was 94.2 per cent complete, and the overall survival rate at 8 years was 43.6 per cent. There was no significant difference in 8-year survival rates between patients with non-ruptured (45.2 per cent) and ruptured (40.5 per cent) aneurysms. The survival curves were also compared with that for an age- and sex-matched population derived from Scottish Home and Health Department data.
