In the decision for surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), the risk of rupture is weighed carefully against the risk of the surgical procedure. Currently, AAA diameter is the main factor that determines the decision for surgery. However, in rupture risk estimation AAA wall stress has higher sensitivity and specificity than maximum diameter . Moreover, peak wall stress was higher for ruptured than for non-ruptured or asymptomatic AAAs [2, 3].
