Abstract

In the 12-year period to December 1991, 5338 new cases of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) were recorded in the Scottish Morbidity Record (SMR) 1. Data from this source were analysed for accuracy; information from 489 of 500 randomly examined case records matched the SMR 1 data, giving an accuracy of 97.8 per cent. There was a steady yearly increase in the number of reported cases, from 283 in 1980 to 612 in 1991; the male to female ratio was 2.5:1. The mean age was 73.1 years, higher in women (73.4 years for intact and 77.2 years for ruptured aneurysm) than in men (69.8 and 71.8 years respectively). The proportion of patients aged over 75 years increased from 29.0 per cent in 1980 to 38.2 per cent in 1991. Rupture occurred in 36.4 per cent of the aneurysms, and 75.0 per cent of these were in men. The increase in numbers occurred in both intact and ruptured cases, particularly the former. The hospital mortality rate for Scotland was 10.5 per cent for intact AAA (including urgent non-ruptured cases) and 54.7 per cent for ruptured aneurysm (including those not operated on), but these figures varied markedly between health boards.
