ANEURYSMS

An aortic aneurysm is a dilation of a blood vessel in the wall of the main blood vessel (aorta) that carries blood from the heart to the body. Aortic aneurysms can form anywhere in the aorta and can be tube-shaped (fusiform) or round in shape (saccular). Having an aortic aneurysm increases the risk of a tear in the inner layer of the aortic wall (aortic dissection).

Our center treats the ENTIRE spectrum of thoracic aortic aneurysms, including the aortic root, ascending aorta, aortic arch, and descending aorta, with great success.
