ABSTRACT
Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) represent a degenerative process of the abdominal aorta that is often attributed to atherosclerosis; however, the exact cause is not known. In American autopsy studies, the frequency rate of AAA ranges from 0.5‐3.2%. The frequency of rupture is 6.9 cases per 100,000 persons in Sweden, 4.8 cases per 100,000 persons in Finland, and 13 cases per 100,000 persons in the United Kingdom. Importantly, patients have a high mortality if an aneurysm ruptures so elective surgical management is of vital importance for the long‐term health of many patients
