Impact of weekend treatment on short-term and long-term survival after urgent repair of ruptured aortic aneurysms in Germany
Internship and Residency
Weekend repairs of ruptured aortic aneurysms are associated with worse in-hospital survival compared with weekday surgery. ER of thoracic or thoracoabdominal aortic ruptures is associated with worse in-hospital survival compared with ER of ruptured abdominal aortic ruptures. This might be an international phenomenon requiring joint learning and action in times of centralization of aortic procedures.
