Özet

Background: No prior studies, to our knowledge, have examined the performance of the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) III score in predicting mortality of patients undergoing open thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) or open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. We sought to evaluate APACHE III scores in the prediction of postoperative mortality in elective TAAA and AAA repairs.
