As part of the NHS aneurysm screening programme, men who have been found to have an enlarged aorta may have an increased risk of cardiovascular problems and are invited to an appointment with our Vascular Nurse Practitioner.

The nurse will undertake a risk factor assessment and will offer support, lifestyle advice, reassurance and any further information required about future monitoring of your aorta.

These appointments are currently taking place over the phone so it is extremely helpful if you could have your height, weight, blood pressure and a list of your current medication available for this appointment.
