Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening

We offer an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm ("AAA") Screening service to self-funding patients in the wider Bristol area.

An aortic aneurysm is an abnormal enlargement of the main artery which transports blood from the heart.  Aneurysms can rupture when the artery becomes too enlarged, which can lead to death.

Any patient can access the service, however patients most at risk are considered to be from the following categories:

  • Men over 55 years old;
  • Patients with a family history of aneurysms;
  • Smokers;
  • Patients with high blood pressure, heart disease or vascular disease;
  • Patients who have had a stroke.

AAA screening involves a painless and non-invasive ultrasound scan that provides images of organs and blood vessels within the body.

No preparation is necessary for the scan, however please be prepared to supply your GP's details if you would like a copy of the report to be sent to them.

The cost

The cost of the service is £75.
