Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms.

The anatomy and physiology of the aorta as well as the signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, epidemiology, and risk factors for the development of AAA are reviewed.

Screening for aneurysm of the abdominal aorta: prevalence in patients with stroke or TIA

Detecting a subpopulation with higher prevalence of AAA may alter this situation, and population screening for aneurysms of the abdominal aorta is still not implemented in any country, despite proven benefit both in decreased mortality and in cost effectiveness.

7 Ultrasound in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

In this chapter, how ultrasound is currently used in management of abdominal aortic aneurysm is described, and future potential and challenges of ultrasound for assisting in improved clinical management with regard to patient selection, treatment alternatives and follow-up are discussed.

Abdominal aortic aneurysm: high prevalence in men over 59 years of age with TIA or stroke, a perspective

Recently, men over 59 years of age presenting with stroke or a transient ischemic attack at the neurology department were found to have a doubled prevalence of AAA, and incorporation of an aortic ultrasonography into the neurological work up of these patients could result in an effective screening program.

Pulse‐Wave Doppler Interrogation of the Abdominal Aorta: A Window to the Left Heart and Vasculature

The usefulness of pulse Doppler recording of the abdominal aorta is reviewed and case examples of its value in various disease states are provided.

The anteroposterior and transverse diameters of the abdominal aorta were significantly higher in males than females and positively correlated with age (p-value <0.001), and the normal abdominal diameters were significantlyHigher in males more than females.

There is no single correct approach to evaluate aortic aneurysm. Variations in individual cases, equipment availability, technical expertise, and surgeons' preference frequently dictate the workup.

The purpose of this study was to categorize the sonographic findings seen in patients with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and to describe 3 previously undescribed sonographic findings.

Influence of sex on expansion rate of abdominal aortic aneurysms

This study assessed the effect of sex on the growth rate of AAA and found that female sex is an independent risk factor for rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
