Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Does screening asymptomatic patients in primary care for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) alter mortality?

Bottom-line:
Ultrasound screening men for AAA (65–74 years) may confer a small AAA-related mortality benefit but does not change all-cause mortality. Population- based screening is not indicated for women.
