    The
    aim of this study is to compare outcomes following
    ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm [AAA] in men and
    women.

       

    648
    men and 225 women were studied. 50% of women and 59%
    of men were admitted to hospital. Of those admitted
    37% of women and 63% of men underwent surgery. The
    overall mortality from ruptured AAA was 90% in women
    and 76% in men, although women on an average were 6
    years older than men. This unfavourable pattern
    occurred across all age groups.
