Abstract

Business logistics is defined as the science of planning, design, and support of business operations of procurement, purchasing, inventory, warehousing, distribution, transportation, customer support, financial and human resources.1 Devolved to the medical field, it might be defined as the planning framework for the management of patients (e.g. with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms), healthcare institutions (e.g. hospitals), material (e.g. stock of endografts), human resources (e.g. involved staff members), information (e.g. education) and other aspects (e.g. transportation of patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, finances). This chapter deals with the aforementioned issues of logistics in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and provides an insight
into already published literature as well as the personal experience of the authors.
