IMPORTANCE Small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs [3.0 cm-5.4 cm in diameter]) are monitored by ultrasound surveillance. The intervals between surveillance scans should be chosen to detect an expanding aneurysm prior to rupture. OBJECTIVE To limit risk of aneurysm rupture or excessive growth by optimizing ultrasound surveillance intervals. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SELECTION Individual patient data from studies of small AAA growth and rupture were assessed. Studies were identified for… CONTINUE READING
