About Aortic Aneurysm Surgery

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Aortic Aneurysm?
An aortic aneurysm is a weakened and bulging area in the aorta, the major blood vessel that feeds blood to the body.
Depending on the size of the aneurysm and on other factors, your doctor may recommend that surgery will be done.

How can Aortic Aneurysm be treated?
Currently the only effective treatment for aortic aneurysm is surgery. A patch or artificial piece of blood vessel is sewn where the aneurysm was to reinforce the aorta so that it does not burst again.

Open aneurysm repair:
A open abdominal or open chest surgery which involves removing the damaged section of the aorta and replacing it with a synthetic tube (graft), which is sewn into place.

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR):
surgery is performed from within your aorta using catheters (thin long tubes). The catheters are entered through small incisions in the groin, and are used to guide and deliver a synthetic graft through the blood vessels to the site of the aneurysm. The graft reinforces the weakened section of the aorta to prevent rupture of the aneurysm.

Days admitted : Typically 7 days at the hospital

Anesthesia : General anesthesia

Recovery : After an open surgery it can take you between 4 weeks to 3 months to fully recover. Endovascular surgery requires shorter recovery time.

Risks : Surgery to repair aortic aneurysm is a serious procedure that involves great risks. Mortality rate from open repair surgery can be 4% or higher, depending on your condition and the quality of the surgeons.
