Executive Health Screening Program: Patient Volume
2016 – 2020
The Executive Health Screening Program is designed to identify any potential peripheral vascular disorders that can affect a patient's health and well-being. The screening exam can identify problems such as carotid artery stenosis, which is a risk factor for stroke; peripheral artery disease, which can indicate an increased risk of heart attack and stroke, and impair function and quality of life; and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). A ruptured AAA is almost entirely preventable if it is identified and the patient is monitored; however, about 15,000 people die each year in the US due to ruptured AAAs.
