Abstract The high mortality of acute renal failure associated with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm continues to plague surgeons. In spite of encouraging reports of increased survival of acute renal failure associated with other clinical situations, the failure to improve survival in this group of patients is disappointing.

In a group of 32 patients who developed renal failure following ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm the survival was only 12.5%.
