Overview of screening eligibility in patients undergoing ruptured AAA repair from 2003 to 2019 in the Vascular Quality Initiative.

Although studies such as the Screening Abdominal Aneurysm Screening Kit are now available, several high-risk populations are still excluded from the guidelines, although others with limited income could benefit from screening. We therefore investigated all patients who recovered ruptured AAA to identify those who are ineligible for testing under new guidelines and assess the potential effects of such restrictions on their health. Males older than 65 years of age with a smoking history or family history characterized the screening-ineligible group by sex and risk factors were the most significant contributors to screening ineligibility, according to sex and risk factors determining the screening population, males younger than 65 years of age with no smoking history or family history, males with a smoking history, females older than 65 years of age with a smoking history, females older than 65 years of age with a In contrast to rAAAs before the introduction of the SAAAVE bill, the percentage of AAA repair performed for males undergoing AAA repair in the VQI dropped from 12% to 8%, while in females, there was no change. Conclusions The majority of patients who underwent rAAA surgery were ineligible for first AAA screening or age out of the screening window. Males with a smoking history or family history of AAA between ages 55 and 64 years, female smokers older than 65 years, and male smokers older than 75 years who are otherwise in good health are among the three high risk groups who may benefit from increased screening procedures: males with a smoke history or family history of AAA between ages 55 and 64 years, female smokers older than 65 years, and male smokers older than 75 years who are not in good shape.
