Comments Sought on AAA Screening Plan

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released a Draft Research Plan on primary care screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms. It is being distributed to receive public input, including from members of the Society for Vascular Surgery.

The Society, which will develop its own response for submission, also encourages individual members to submit comments. Responses must be received by 8 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, Sept. 6.

The draft plan includes a proposed analytic framed work, key questions for review, contextual questions and a research approach. The final plan will be used to guide a systematic review of the evidence by researchers at an Evidence-based Practice Center. The resulting Evidence Review will form the basis of the USPSTF Recommendation Statement on this topic.
