    Yes. This is a very good reason to have the screening done. People who have heart disease are at higher risk for peripheral arterial disease. Likewise, people who have an abnormal ABI are 3 to 5 times more likely to have coronary artery disease. Read More

    Once an aneurysm reaches 5 to 6 cm in diameter, the risk of rupture is very high. If rupture occurs, there is approximately an 80 to 95% chance of death. Therefore, the majority of vascular surgeons would agree that a 5 to 6 cm aneurysm should be repaired immediately, unless other medical factors...Read More
