Abstract

We examined the abdominal aorta by ultrasound in 1106 patients during transthoracic echocardiography, whatever the reason of the echocardiography, to track abdominal aortic aneurysms. The study group comprised 822 men and 284 women. We found 88 patients having an abdominal aorta with a diameter of more than 23 mm and 11 patients with a diameter of more than 35 mm. Ninety sixteen per cent of the patients having an aortic ecstasy are more than fifty years old. Ther are more smokers among the patients having an aortic ecstasy. In conclusion, the track of the ecstasies and the abdominal aortic aneurysms is easily realizable during an echocardiography and presents a good rentability.
