[Comment] Screening men for AAA under magnification loupe in Sweden

Nationwide screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in men has only been implemented in Sweden and the UK. In 2016, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare, a government agency under the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, re-established its support for the recommendation to screen men aged 65 years with one ultrasound examination of the abdomen,1 stating that on the basis of available evidence, ”the benefits will outweigh the harms”. In The Lancet, Minna Johansson and colleagues2 report estimates of the effect of AAA screening on disease-specific mortality, incidence, and surgery in a real-world setting.
