Free screening for seniors in New Orleans

Posted By J. B. Hunt, AAAneurysm Outreach, Monday, September 17, 2018

NEW ORLEANS, La — Free health screening at UMC to detect aneurysms


The average person assumes aneurysms only occur in the head. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the most common aneurysm. People who experience a rupture in the body's largest blood vessel seldom survive. AAA could best be described as a time bomb in the body.   AAA affects an aging population.  Males have the higher risk of developing AAA. 


University Medical Center of New Orleans, AAAneurysm Outreach and W.L. Gore and Associates are planning a free screening event October 13, 2018 from 8 a.m. to noon for abdominal aortic aneurysm and thoracic aortic aneurysms, in the UMC Conference Center, at 2000 Canal Street in New Orleans. Other partners include Luke’s House Clinic and Healthy Blue Louisiana.


“This screening test is a simple ultrasound. It only takes a few minutes and is painless,” according to William Risher, MD. “If an aneurysm is found early, it can be treated to prevent rupturing.”


Bilingual Spanish and English medical professionals will be on hand at this event.


Appointments are offered to individuals over 60 and also to men over 55 who have a family history of aneurysms.  Men 65-75 who have ever smoked are especially encouraged to participate.  Advance registration and 8-hour fast required. Refreshments will be provided after ultrasound screenings are performed.  Call 888-877-3801 to register.


AAAneurysm Outreach (AO) headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, is the nation’s only non-profit dedicated to mobilizing people and resources to eliminate the devastating consequences of AAA rupture through education and early detection. Visit
