Abstract [en]

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) fulfils the criteria for a disease suitable for screening. However, important aspects need to be further analysed; the optimal age of the male population considered for screening has not yet been established, and whether women or specific high risk groups would benefit from screening has not been sufficiently evaluated. The impact of the current shift toward a high proportion of AAA repair done with endovascular technique and the long-term effect on QoL are additional issues that have not been adequately studied. Furthermore, therapeutic options for small AAA as well as secondary prevention programmes have to be developed.
