The aim of ­this ­study was to ana­lyse the influ­ence of var­i­ous pre­op­er­a­tive ­risk fac­tors on post­op­er­a­tive mor­tal­ity ­after elec­tive sur­gery for abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysms. It is a ret­ro­spec­tive ­study of 263 con­sec­u­tive oper­a­tions per­formed in January 1994-December 1995 ­with a ­mean fol­low-up of 28.9 ­months (range 0-44). The ­case ­series con­sist­ed of 244 elec­tive sur­gery ­patients and the prog­nos­tic param­e­ters con­sid­ered ­were: sex, age, con­com­i­tant vas­cu­lar con­di­tions and com­mon ath­e­ros­cle­rot­ic ­risk fac­tors (dia­betes, smok­ing, ­high ­blood pres­sure, dys­lip­i­dae­mia) as ­well as con­com­i­tant ischaem­ic car­di­op­a­thy, chron­ic obstruc­tive, bron­chop­neu­mop­a­thy (­COBP) or chron­ic kid­ney fail­ure and allo­ca­tion to one of the 4 ASA class­es. Univariate and mul­ti­var­i­ate regres­sion anal­y­ses was ­used to iden­ti­fy sig­nif­i­cant fac­tors in imme­di­ate mor­tal­ity and the Kaplan-Meyer meth­od was ­applied to sur­vi­val ­tables in ­order to ­assess ­long-­term ­results. Peroperative mor­tal­ity ­came to 1.2%/3 cas­es; 3-­year sur­vi­val to 86.2%. Among ­patients ­over 75 the sur­vi­val fig­ure ­fell to 76% or 77.4% in ­patients ­with ­heart dis­ease. The ­study ­found ­that mor­tal­ity ­after ­APIA sur­gery was low and 3-­year sur­vi­val sat­is­fac­to­ry, ­while the fac­tors ­with ­most ­impact on out­come ­were age and ­heart dis­ease.
