Who Should Be Screened?
There are several different ideas of thought on who should be screened for an AAA. We generally suggest that those who receive the screening are:
- Men who are 65-75 and have smoked more than 100 cigarettes in their life
- Men who have never smoked but have risk factors in the age bracket of 65-75
- Those with risk factors
Our team is here to help with screening for those who may be living daily with certain risk factors that increase the chance of an AAA. Those factors include CAD, atherosclerosis, 1st degree relatives that have a history of AAA, and hypertension. Males tend to be more prominent in this disease as well.
