AAAneurysm Outreach is again partnering with Regional Medical Center of Acadiana and Dr. Mitchell Lirtzman to host a free abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA -pronounced Triple-A) ultrasound screening program on December 7th for those most at risk (seniors, especially males) in the Lafayette area.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is among the top 17 leading causes of all deaths in the U.S. and the third leading cause of sudden death in American
men. Males, specifically Caucasians, and those who have a history of smoking, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, high cholesterol or family history of AAA, are most at risk. If an aneurysm is discovered before it ruptures, death may be prevented.
