Authors' recomendations: Based on the high level of evidence available it would appear that a one-off abdominal ultrasound screen for men aged between 65-74 years is effective in terms of reduced mortality. In addition, the cost per quality adjusted life year (QALY) makes screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) cost-effective. HealthPACT have therefore recommended that this summary be forwarded to the Clinical, Technical and Ethical Principle Committee for forwarding to the National Screening Committee for their consideration.
