[From guidelines for screening to their (poor) implementation: the case of the abdominal aortic aneurysm].

Abstract : Following the evidence of benefits of ultrasound screening for abdominal aorta aneurysms (AAA), several guidelines support this screening in population. Beyond the prompt diagnosis of AAA prior to its rupture of grim vital prognosis, small AAA can beconsidered as a prognostic marker for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Yet, its detection is an opportunity for secondary prevention to reduce CVD mortality. Despite, these guidelines are poorly applied: systematic screening campaigns are infrequent, making the screening of family physicians responsibility. While the major benefit from this screening strategy is to reduce AAA-related death (but only trivial effect on long-term total mortality), this explains only partially the lack of guidelines implementation. The reasons of the poor implementation of these guidelines are discussed herein.
