The size and symptoms of the triple A condition play a crucial role in the classification of this condition.

An aneurysm is defined as an enlargement of aorta more than 3 cm in diameter. However, the normal diameter of aorta is 2 cm.

The rupture triple A condition leads to the pain in abdomen, shock and a pulsatile abdominal mass. If the conditions are present for a long time there is no need of any clinical investigations.

The surgery has been very successful in the recent times in this condition but still the mortality rate is 40 percent in the post operative cases. But in order to decrease this post operative mortality rate the surgery must be done before the rupture of triple A. It may lead to around 3 percent of the mortality rate.
