A logistic regression analysis of risk factors affecting the mortality on 69 cases of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA), treated between 1988-1996, has been carried out. Mortality was 33.3%. No single risk factor significantly influenced mortality except the shock (p = 0.0016). The presence of two o less risk factors in the same patient was associated with 24% mortality, whereas three o more risk factors were associated with 92.4% mortality.
