Abstract OBJECTIVES: to establish the mortality of ARF following surgical repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) and to identify clinical variables which might assist in predicting outcome. DESIGN, MATERIALS AND METHODS: all cases of ARF complicating repair of ruptured AAAs treated at Leicester General Hospital between 1984 and 1996 were identified in a retrospective study based on review of clinical records. The main outcome measures were overall mortality, duration of hospital treatment and renal function in survivors. RESULTS: in 65 cases identified, overall hospital mortality was 75\%. Six patients did not receive RRT, since their clinical state was judged irreversible; all died. Of the 16 survivors, 11 were left with irreversible renal impairment and one patient required maintenance dialysis. Over half of the survivors had died at 5 years>> follow-up. Non-survivors had more vascular disease (p=0.048), required more surgery during AAA repair (p=0.042) and were more likely to have developed multiple organ failure (p=0.01). A clinical severity score based on these three variables allowed stratification into prognostic groups. CONCLUSIONS: ARF following surgical repair of ruptured AAA has an overall hospital mortality of 75\%. A clinical severity score, calculated at the time dialysis was considered, may assist in prediction of outcome. Copyright 2000 Harcourt Publishers Ltd.
