Objective: This case report aimed to introduce key therapies and improve survival for patients with lethal complications following ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA).
Case report: We present a case of a patient with rAAA who developed hypovolemic shock, abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), acidosis and intestinal perforation. Due to the successful management of damage control operation (DCO), conservative fluid strategies and renal replacement therapy, he recovered and was discharged in the end.
Conclusion: Early detection, suitable operation method and negative fluid resuscitation are key treatments of rAAA.
