Abstract: Open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) requires aortic clamping. This results in an ischaemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) which can lead to the development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and multiple organ failure (MOF). We investigated the use of urinary albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) as a simple predictor of the development of complications (SIRS) postoperatively.
