Brief description The abdominal aorta may undergo dilatation resulting an aneurysm. Some aneurysms may rupture causing death. The risk of rupture increases once the diameter exceeds 5cm. The management is detection and surgery for large aneurysms. As most aneurysms are asymptomatic prior to rupture screening of men using ultrasound may save lives. The aims of this study are to assess the role of screening on mortality from aneurysms and to assess a new blood test which may help monitor aneurysms.
