Abstract

The authors' experience of surgical management of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), in 1725 consecutive patients, operated on in a ten years period (1980-1989) is presented. Surgical indications, operative technique, and outcome of elective and emergency procedures are analyzed. A ten years follow-up period is also presented. This shows a significantly better survival rate in surgically treated patients than in nonoperated cases.
