We found a high prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors at diagnosis in patients with incidentally detected AA who, however, develop new metabolic and vascular complications unfrequently in the long-term. Moreover, AA have a limited potential of growth. These data suggest that most patients with incidental AA should be managed conservatively.

Abstract

We found a high prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors at diagnosis in patients with incidentally detected AA who, however, develop new metabolic and vascular complications unfrequently in the long-term. Moreover, AA have a limited potential of growth. These data suggest that most patients with incidental AA should be managed conservatively.
