A new study confirms and strengthens the association between fluoroquinolone antibiotics and increased risk of aortic aneurysm, prompting calls to broaden warnings to include all adults, not just high-risk adults.

In December 2018, the US FDA updated its May 2017 safety alert stating that fluoroquinolone antibiotics should not be used in patients at increased risk of aortic disease.
