Patient discussion about AAA

Q. Is there a good screening test for aortic abdominal aneurysm? A friend of mine was diagnosed with an aortic abdominal aneurysm. I am afraid i might have this condition too. is there any screening test that is good for me?

A. Today there are "mobile" testing centers that charge to use ultrasound technology to detect such things as AAA. I would highly recommend it only because it can act as a preventative measure. I am 50 years old and just suffered a ruptured AAA that very nearly killed me. I was the fortunate one. This very possibly could have detected it before it actually ruptured. You may want to check in your local areas for these mobile testing centers.

Before considering any 1996 distributions, L has a $65,000 cushion ($50,000 AAA + $15,000 PTI) before distributions would be treated as dividends.
Under the general ordering rules, the distribution would reduce OLM's AAA to $35,000, leaving the PTI and AE&P intact; L would have a $50,000 cushion ($35,000 AAA + $15,000 PTI) after receiving the distribution.
Thus, a distribution of property, which would not come from PTI absent a bypass election, could come from PTI if the corporation made an AAA bypass election, a dichotomy that makes little sense.
There are also disadvantages to making an AAA bypass election in favor of PTI.
If OLM made an AAA bypass election for the year of the distribution, L would receive $15,000 from his PTI account as a return of capital; Ms distribution would be a dividend from AE&P.
A corporation that has both shareholders with and without PTI accounts might consider making distributions to the former, so that no shareholder would report a dividend, and the AAA would remain intact.
M may be required to report the distribution as ordinary income, because OLM elected to bypass its AAA.
Thus, in 1995 or 1996, OLM could make a $15,000 distribution to L, make a proper AAA bypass election, make no other distributions and not incur any disproportionate distribution problems; the AAA would remain intact.
An AAA bypass election will not accomplish this, unless the corporation makes sufficient distributions to exhaust both PTI and AE&P.
