Screening of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Among Male Patients With TIA Symptoms
Screening of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Among Male Patients With TIA Symptoms

The purpose of this study is to investigate the prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) among male patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) symptoms. Ethiology of AAA is known to be common with atherosclerotic arterial diseases (coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease and carotid artery disease), so the hypothesis is that AAA should be more common among these TIA patients, thus making screening of these patients (for AAA) more cost-efficient.

Study will be carried out as a prospective screening study. Data will be collected in North Karelia Central Hospital within one year. All male patients with TIA symptoms will be recruited for the study and screened for AAA with ultrasound.
