Aortic Aneurysm:

Symptoms & Treatment Options

An aortic aneurysm is an abnormal bulge in the wall of the aorta, your body's main artery. There are three primary types: thoracic (chest area), abdominal (belly area), and thoracoabdominal (spanning both regions). Recognizing the risk factors in order to seek proper care is critical.

Aortic Aneurysm: Symptoms, Causes, and More

Causes of Aortic Aneurysm

Aneurysms are usually caused by weakening of the blood vessel wall related to inflammation typically associated with atherosclerosis. Additional risk factors include tobacco use, high blood pressure, genetics and increased age (older than 60).

Symptoms of Aortic Aneurysm

The majority of abdominal and thoracic aneurysms are asymptomatic, making screening essential for diagnosis. Symptomatic aneurysms are commonly a life threating situation requiring immediate intervention. 

Complications of Aortic Aneurysm

Aneurysm rupture is the most worrisome complication, which can lead to massive internal bleeding.  With appropriate screening and early diagnosis aneurysms can be safely treated. 

When to See a Doctor?

Patients with risk factors or developing aortic aneurysms should seek screening for early detection. Possible worrisome symptoms that require immediate intervention include: sudden onset of abdominal or lower back pain, with or without a pulsating sensation in the abdomen. 

Treatment Options for Aortic Aneurysm

Aneurysm Repair Surgery

Historically aneurysm repair required a very risky complex surgery which remains the treatment of choice in a very select number of cases. A vascular surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen and essentially replaces the abnormal part of the aorta. 

Minimally Invasive Treatments

Endovascular aneurysm repair is a much safer technique when compared to traditional surgical options. This advanced minimally invasive procedure is performed by placing a stent graft (metal lined fabric tube) to reinforce the aorta. Recovery time and complication risks are significantly decreased compared to traditional surgical options. 

Medication & Monitoring

For smaller aneurysms, lifestyle modification such as smoking cessation, and medication compliance are essential to limit aneurysm growth. Regular monitoring with imaging and a comprehensive vascular evaluation are essential to prevent potentially fatal complications.
