The risks of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) resection are not known. Prophylaxis with aspirin and statins is not generally recommended, although patients with AAAs have an increased prevalence of cardiovascular atherosclerosis. We report the incidences of MI, stroke, and death in an unselected national cohort of patients operated on for AAAs, with the general population as the control group.
