BACKGROUND The Physiological and Operative Severity Score for enUmeration of Mortality and morbidity (POSSUM), which consists of a physiological score (PS) and an operative severity score, is useful in determining the risk profile for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms in Western countries, but no information is available on the use of this method in Japan. METHODS AND RESULTS A retrospective cohort study involving 225 patients was performed, and the prognostic factors for morbidity and… CONTINUE READING
