149752 - How to Treat quiz: Abdominal aortic aneurysms

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Abdominal aortic aneurysms typically affect older men, with other common risk factors being smoking, family history and the presence of other large artery aneurysms. Most abdominal aortic aneurysms are detected incidentally on imaging for other pathologies. 
Asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysms should remain under surveillance until they reach the threshold for repair, while symptomatic but unruptured aneurysms require urgent surgical assessment and management. 
The role of the GP in the multidisciplinary team includes: detection and referral, optimising medical management, promotion of risk factor modification and post-operative care and surveillance.
