This article focuses on the surgical treatment of ruptured infrarenal aortic aneurysms. Between August 1970 and December 1979, 65 patients were operated on for a ruptured infrarenal aortic aneurysm at the Department of Cardiac Surgery of the San Camillo Hospital in Rome. All medical records of patients operated on for a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm between August 1970 and December 1979 were reviewed. Two patients had a concomitant stenosis of the left renal artery. In 4 cases, the aneurysm affected not only the infrarenal aorta but the abdominal iliac arteries, too. The most typical symptom presented at the moment of clinical examination by patients in whom the rupture of the aneurysm formed only a small retroperitoneal hematoma, was pain, abdominal or located in the back and rarely irradiated to the groin.
