Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a potentially life threatening condition, with the highest risk group being males over the age of 65. Screening can help spot a swelling in the aorta early on when it can be treated. The screening consists of a painless, non-invasive ultrasound scan. 

 

Referrals

In England, appointment letters are automatically sent to men during the year they turn 65. Men aged 66+ can refer themselves for AAA screening.
