Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening 

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening  | aorta | Scoop.it

"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.  Effective screening for AAA, followed by surgery when necessary, will almost completely eliminate death due to the rupture of an AAA."

GP Care provides convenient and affordable AAA screening in the wider Bristol area for £70.  Call us on 0845 468 2101 to book your scan today.
