ENDOVASCULAR SURGERY

Treatment for Aortic Aneurysms

An aortic aneurysm is a weakened and often bulging area of the aorta, a major artery located in the chest and abdomen. Aortic aneurysms can develop in the chest (thoracic aortic aneurysms) or belly (abdominal aortic aneurysms). Endovascular surgery is a minimally-invasive approach that avoids the need for large incisions in the abdomen or chest. Instead, special surgical instruments are inserted through small incisions made directly into the blood vessels. Benefits of an endovascular approach include:

  • Reduced hospital stay and shorter recovery time

  • Less pain with a quicker return to active living

  • Smaller incisions
