Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Simple Treatment or Prevention

The goal of AAA: STOP is to determine whether an exercise
program reduces the rate of AAA enlargement and to gather information on AAA risk factors. If you are a patient with a small abdominal aortic aneurysm (<5.5 cm in size) and over the age
of 50, you may qualify for participation in the study.

Aneurysms are generally treated with surgery. One of the main purposes of this study is to test the efficacy of exercise as a non-surgical treatment of small AAAs. We want to determine if long-term exercise improves abdominal aneurysms and helps to prevent the need for surgery.
