Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

JAMA. 2005;293(12):1440. doi:10.1001/jama.293.12.1440-a

The US Preventive Services Task Force is now recommending that men between the ages of 65 and 75 years who are or have been smokers receive a one-time ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms. The Task Force based this advice on a report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Oregon Evidence-based Practice Center, in Portland, which examined the benefits and harms of population-based abdominal aortic aneurysm screening (Fleming et al. Ann Intern Med. 2005;142:203-211).
