Abstract

The Health In Men Study (HIMS) arose out of a population-based randomized trial of screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) conducted in Perth, Western Australia in 1996–99. 1 ,2 Only men aged 65 years and over were recruited into the trial as AAAs are uncommon below this age and are six times more common in men than women. The aim of the trial was to assess whether screening reduced mortality from AAA. Secondary outcomes included assessments of the impact of screening on all-cause mortality and quality of life 3 and a study of the rates of expansion of screen-detected AAAs.
