About this book

This manual is designed to serve as the standard for the management of patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) by means of modern techniques. All aspects are covered, from pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and diagnosis through to initial management, operative strategies, postoperative complications, outcomes and quality of life issues. The book is based on the experience gained at a leading U.S. institution (Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington) that treats up to 40 patients with ruptured AAA annually and is highly respected for its expertise in this medical emergency. The team at Harborview Medical Center has recently shown that the implementation of a structured protocol for the management of ruptured AAA, with emphasis on an “endovascular-first” strategy, dramatically reduces mortality and complications. This has led to a sea change in the way in which patients are managed. There is an increasing hunger for information on these codified protocols and Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Definitive Manual will be invaluable for both surgeons and critical care physicians.

“The authors have conducted an exhaustive review of the diagnosis and management of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms … . can be used by any student, resident, fellow, or attending in the field of vascular surgery. This book not only has helpful background information and educational material that would serve all readers well, it also contains detailed operative objectives and procedures that would most benefit readers with surgical experience, especially in vascular surgery.” (Ashish K.

“The purpose is to delineate in detail the management of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. … This will best serve as an educational tool for residents and fellows in vascular surgery and as a point of reference for attending practicing vascular surgeons. Even vascular surgeons who regularly operate on the aorta can gain valuable information from this book, as it provides the collective insight of some of the leading aortic surgeons in the country.” (Ashish Jain, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2017)
