Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the abdominal aorta. It is usually asymptomatic however, depending on the size of the aneurysm people may experience pain or a pulsating feeling in their abdomen. When the diameter exceeds 5.5cm there is a significant risk
of rupture, which is usually fatal. Depending on the size of the aneurysm treatment options include either surgical, endovascular intervention or monitoring.
The aim of this study was to identify and evaluate existing patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) for use in patients with AAA to inform the selection of
appropriate outcomes for use in vascular services.
