husbands sister had a sonogram to check for a possible gynecological problem What the doctor discovered was an abdominal aortic aneurysm AAA that was large enough for mandatory surgery Her doctor told her to notify any siblings that they too should have a sonogram The unexpected result of my husbands examination stunned us all Bill too had an abdominal aortic aneurysm Bill was monitored for one year until the aneurysm surged significantly The operation followed a month later The doctors insight about the genetic factor probably saved Bills life Abby please tell your readers that this type of aneurysm is hereditary If a parent or sibling has had an aortic aneurysm then all siblings and offspring should be examined We have been advised that our son must be tested when he reaches age 50 and should continue to have a sonogram every five years thereafter The cause of the aneurysms is unknown although several risk hypertension smoking and could possibly contribute to their been found to occur more frequently in males than in females Abdominal aortic aneurysms are silent and usually deadly if not discovered before they rupture Ruptures are preventable with continued use of ultrasonography and CT scanning I hope my letter will be a red alert to anyone whose family has a history of aneurysms Check with your doctor Dont put it off And physicians who are unaware of this
