The present knowledge on endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA) prevents firm conclusions when to use this method in comparison to open repair. This review article briefly summarizes results from case series, and discusses how to achieve reliable information despite the absence of randomized controlled trials. At present a careful conclusion might be that dedicated centers with an adequate organization and reasonably high volume of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) should use detailed registry protocols to achieve experience and data to create an as reliable basis as possible for future recommendations.
