Aortic Aneurysm

Aortic aneurysms are dilatations or enlargements of the body’s main artery, the aorta. They can occur in any section of the aorta from its origin where it exits the heart down to its ending in the abdomen.

Aortic aneurysm explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
In most cases it is not necessary to operate immediately. If the aneurysm is of a considerable size, and we believe that the risk of the disease outweighs the risk of the procedures we can offer to correct it, then we have both surgical and endovascular procedures that can be done with very little risk, and with very good results. And we can expect a normal life and a normal quality of life.
