Diagnosis of Aortic Aneurysm

Large aneurysm can be seen on X-rays. It can also be detected using CT, MRI of echocardiography. The decision to treat aneurysm surgery will be based on some factors and symptoms like chest and back pains, pain in the jaw, neck and upper back. If the aneurysm is growing more than one cm per year or the sudden severe tearing pain in the chest or back  surgery is suggested. Also, the medical condition and age of the patent have an important role in this decision making.

Aortic Aneurysm surgery

The surgeon opens the stomach area or the chest area and replacing the weakened section with an artificial tube called graft is the major process in the surgery. After aneurysm surgery the patient is asked to make some changes in the regular activities like modifying diet, quitting smoking, and maintaining healthy weight and learn to deal with stress. It is better to take care of you arteries than undergoing surgery.
