Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm : 
Screening  for abdominal aortic aneurysm in men aged 65-75 years is associated with a significant reduction in condition-specific mortality (odds ratio, 0.57 [95% CI, 0.45 to 0.74]). This benefit is sustained through 7 years of followup. Women do not appear to benefit, and the most of the benefit in men appears to accrue among current or former smokers.
