Endovascular treatment of aneurysm


Endovascular treatment of aneurysm means the avoiding general anesthesia, transperitoneal laparotomy, involving a relatively extensive dissection of the soft tissue, aortic clamping, as well as significant blood loss requiring transfusions and the associated risks.

What factors are fundamental to successful aneurysm operation?

Abdominal aortic aneurysm is an extremely serious health condition – that is actually life-threatening – so as soon as a vascular surgeon has made a decision to treat an aneurysm by surgery, this should actually be accomplished in the near few hours. Treatment of individuals affected by aortic aneurysm is dependent upon a wide variety … Continue reading

If you’ve come here looking for information on aneurysm surgery, chances are you are probably aware of the term ‘Aneurysm‘. In case you haven’t, Aneurysm is a condition that involves bulging of a portion of a blood vessel in our body. The common place in human body where aneurysm condition occurs usually is an aorta. … Continue reading

Ultrasound in endovascular treatment

Radiological imaging is used in pre-operative planning of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and for intra-operative guidance and control. In pre-operative planning, imaging is used to get a measure of the 3D anatomy for investigating eligibility of EVAR and for choosing or customizing stentgrafts. A standard image scanning technique for this specific aim is computed tomography … Continue reading

Detection and monitoring of abdominal aortic aneurysm

Aortic aneurysm is most often asymptomatic until rupture, and coincidentally detected during examination for other diseases. Ultrasound has been recommended for detection of AAA in symptomatic patients and for asymptomatic patients in risk groups. A number of studies suggest that population screening reduces AAA mortality in subgroups with increased AAA susceptibility. Screening may still represent … Continue reading

Endovascular repair of ruptured aneurysm

Endovascular aortic repair is a new catheter-based, imaging guided procedure that has the potential to redefine the traditional approach to the treatment of AAA.

Inflammatory aortic aneurysms

In contrast with atherosclerotic aortic aneurysms, the majority of patients with an intact inflammatory aneurysm are symptomatic.
