Abstract

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) represent a lethal condition. The morbidity and mortality rates associated with open surgical repair remain alarmingly high and endoluminal exclusion may be a preferred alternative. Outlined in this review are suggested methods for expedient endovascular repair of ruptured AAAs that involve a multidisciplinary approach. Institutional comparative outcomes of open versus stent-graft repair are also reviewed in lieu of randomized trial data.
