Abstract [en]

The purpose was to investigate whether screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm and the finding of an enlarged aorta in those men causes worries and affects the life-situation. Men at the age of 65 years were invited to ultrasound screening and they who had an enlarged aorta (≥30 mm), were invited for a qualitative interview analyzed by interpretive phenomenological method. Totally 11 men were interviewed. Three themes were identified: be under superintendence; affected, but live as usual; and hereditariness leading to fatalism. Although not unaffected by the screening result the men carry on with their life as usual. However, the need for a long term study to confirm the results is now in accomplishment.
