Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Guidelines

2018 Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms in Canada: Review and position statement from the Canadian Society of Vascular Surgery

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) remain a significant risk to patients, despite level- 1 evidence for screening to prevent rupture events and decrease mortality. Almost a decade ago, the Canadian Society for Vascular Surgery (CSVS) published a review and position statement for AAA screening in Canada. Since that publication, there have been a number of further updates to the published literature affecting screening recommendations. In this paper, a review of some of the controversies in the AAA screening literature will be presented to help understand differences in the various published screening guidelines. This article represents a review of the data and updated recommendations for AAA screening amongst the Canadian population on behalf of the CSVS.  Download the CSVS Guidelines for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening.
