abstract

  • These findings suggest that the factors (loss of consciousness, creatinine level, hemoglobin level) that are predictive of death may be a reflection of shock in this patient population. Further studies should be directed to optimizing preoperative resuscitation. Patients who have a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm should not be denied therapy on the basis of any specific set of preoperative factors.
