Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Guidelines

Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms in Canada: 2020 review and position statement from the Canadian Society of Vascular Surgery

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) remain a major risk to patients, despite

level 1 evidence for screening to prevent rupture events and decrease mortality.

In 2007, 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 updates in the published literature affecting screening recommendations. In this paper, we present a review of some of the controversies in the AAA screening literature to help elucidate differences in the various published screening guidelines. This article represents a review of the data

and updated recommendations for AAA screening in the Canadian population on behalf of the CSVS.
