Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

Phase: N/A

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: French Cardiology Society

Summary

Study of the prevalence of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) (> 3 cm) in patients with echocardiography (transthoracic or) during a specific day, with cardiologists in France. This is a cross-sectional epidemiological investigation, assembling evidence from a routine ultrasound screening for AAA at the waning of echocardiograms performed during a specific day. The study will be offered a list of centers selected by the Scientific Committee in the complete list of locations being in France, the subsidiary of echocardiography Echocardiography of French Society of Cardiology. These centers will be 500 in number representative of the French centers, geographically and by type of centers.

Clinical Details

Official title: Observatory of Screening Aneurysms of the Abdominal Aorta During Echocardiography. National Epidemiological Survey

Study design: Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary outcome: Prevalence of patients with AAA among those with echocardiography.

Detailed description: Multicenter observational study collecting data from a routine ultrasound screening for AAA at the waning of echocardiograms performed during a specific day. All of the cardiologists practicing echocardiography are invited to participate in this study, each cardiologist should include echocardiography in 10 patients examined for any reason and will be considered referring cardiologist. There will be no follow-up, the idea is to have a database with measures of abdominal aortic aneurysms and therefore.

Eligibility

Minimum age: 65 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria:

- Any patient > 65 years,

- Have an echocardiogram, whatever the reason,

- Having agreed to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients already operated in the aorta (AAA, PAD, stent, ...)

- Patient refusal to participate in the study
