While cross-clamp site is a known risk factor for post-operative acute and chronic renal dysfunction following open abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery (AAA), the additive impact of patient demographic and clinical factors is lacking. In this study, we investigated the impact of body mass index (BMI), surgical duration and aneurysm diameter on the association between proximal cross clamp location and post-operative renal dysfunction.
