Lakeview Regional Medical Center and AAAneurysm Outreach are set to provide free lifesaving abdominal aortic aneurysm screenings June 16 from 8 a.m. to noon at Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a ballooning of the abdominal aorta, the artery that carries blood to the lower part of the body. This type of aneurysm rupture is the third leading cause of sudden death in men 60 and older in the United States. It is estimated that more than 1 million people are living today with an undiagnosed AAA. Risk factors for AAA include a history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hardening of the arteries.
