Aneurysm Detection and Management Veterans Affairs Cooperative Study - ADAM

Description:

The Aneurysm Detection and Management Veterans Affairs Cooperative Study (ADAM) was a randomized clinical trial designed to determine which of two strategies would result in a higher rate of survival for patients with small (4.0-5.4 cm) abdominal aortic aneurysm: immediate open surgical repair or surveillance with ultrasonography, or computed tomography (CT) with repair reserved for aneurysms that enlarged or became symptomatic.
