The incidence of rupture was assessed per aneurysm instead of per patient. Data were censored during a patient’s death, a medical or endovascular intervention, or the last follow-up assessment. When a individual underwent a endovascular or surgical intervention, data from the time up to enough time of the intervention were included in the evaluation of threat of rupture. Although the patient continued to be followed following the intervention, data from this period were not contained in the risk analysis. The hazard ratios for rupture were analyzed with the use of a Cox proportional-hazards model. Variables connected with rupture in univariate analyses were contained in a backward, stepwise, multivariate analysis.
