NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Deerfield announced today the publication of "Persisting disparities between sexes

in outcomes of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm hospitalizations" in the journal Scientific ReportsScientific Reports is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal from Nature Research.  This is one of 12 articles written by Deerfield
this year that has been published in peer reviewed journals.

The article, written by Deerfield Institute's Mark Stuntz, Céline Audibert and Zheng Su, examines the discrepancies between the sexes in outcomes of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). Deerfield showed that although the incidence and mortality for rAAA has generally improved over time for both males and females, discrepancies still exist between the male and female population. Its findings revealed that females remain at a higher risk of in-hospital death than males and are less likely to undergo rAAA repair. In fact, even if females did receive surgery, they were more likely to have fatal outcomes. This article is intended to stimulate further exploration of gender based differences in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with the goal of improving outcomes.
