Patients with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) still have high mortality. Rapid diagnosis and treatment are vital for improving survival outcomes. rAAA management has evolved regarding these factors. We have reported the case of a 70-year-old man with an rAAA that was rapidly diagnosed and treated in a hybrid emergency room (ER). A hybrid ER is an integrated ER capable of computed tomography scanning, interventional radiology, and surgery in one place. In the present case, the door-to-intervention time was 35 minutes. The use of hybrid ERs has the potential to enhance the speed and quality of diagnostic and definitive treatment of rAAAs.
