Primary care screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm : a systematic evidence review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

The objective of this study was to assess the benefits and harms of AAA screening programs and approaches to treating small aneurysms, and to determine screening yield for subgroup populations. studies could be underpowered to detect other differences in health outcomes. AAA screening in men ages 65...

AAA screening in men ages 65 years and older was associated with decreased AAA rupture and AAA-related mortality but no difference in all-cause mortality. Treatment of small, screen-detected AAA with early open or EVAR surgery did not result in improved health outcomes compared with surveillance. Short-term but not long-term differences in quality of life have been seen with screening for AAA in those who screen positive
