Rupture is the most important complication of the abdominal aortic aneurysms. Diagnosis is clinical and radiological. The mortality of patients who have undergone open repair remains high (between 30 and 50%) and it has not changed for two decades. Mortality in patients who underwent endovascular repair was lower (about 20%). Further studies are needed to establish the standard of care and the scientific debate is animate.
