Abdominal & Thoracic Aneurysms
What is a Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm?
What causes Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm?
How can Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm be treated?
A patient with thoracic aortic aneurysms can be treated with endovascular stent grafting, a less invasive method, or via open surgical repair. The decision which options depends on the patient’s health and the exact anatomy of their aneurysm.
An endovascular stent is a metal and fabric tube that relines the inside of an aneurysm, preventing further enlargement and therefore the risk of rupture.
