To determine the long term relative survival of all patients who had surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm in Western Australia during 1985-94.
Population based study.
All patients who had had surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm in Western Australia during 1985-94.
Morbidity and mortality data of patients admitted and surgically treated for abdominal aortic aneurysm in Western Australia during 1985-94.
Elective, ruptured, and acute non-ruptured cases were analysed separately, Independent analyses for sex and patients aged 80 years or more were also undertaken.
Postoperative (>30 days) relative survival was assessed against age and sex matched controls.
Overall, 1475 (1257 men, 218 women) cases were identified.
The crude five year survival after elective surgery, including deaths within 30 days of surgery, was 79% for both men and women.
When compared with a matched population the five year relative survival after elective surgery was 94.9% (95% confidence interval 89,9% to 99,9%) for men but only 88.0% (76.3% to 99.7%) for women.
The five year relative survival of those aged 80 years and over was good : 116.6% (89.1% to 144.0%) compared with 92.4% (87.7% to 97.0%) for those under 80 years of age (men and women combined).
Cardiovascular disease caused 57.8% of the 341 deaths after 30 days. (...)
