Emergency surgery for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms is accompanied with massive blood loss and is correlated with high incidences of coagulopathy. Following established results with abdominal packing to control hepatic hemorrhage, we present this technique for uncontrollable hemorrhage in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. The experience with this technique in 46 patients is described.
