Aortic Aneurysm Stenting/Open Surgery

Best Aortic Stent Surgery
What do i need TREATMENT for?

As your vascular surgeon has explained to you, the main artery in your abdomen, the abdominal aorta, has a weak and swollen area (abdominal aortic aneurysm). In order to prevent bursting (rupture) of the aneurysm, you need to have an operation for replacement of this part of the aorta with a graft.

This method was selected in your case as a better option over endovascular repair either because the anatomical features (shape, extent, relation to the renal arteries etc) of your aneurysm are not favourable for repair with a stented graft (EVAR) or on grounds of your age and medical history.

BEFORE the Treatment
Coming into HOSPITAL

When you are admitted, it will be quite useful to bring with you all medications you are on. Your medical history will be recorded. Later, your vascular surgeon and the anaesthetist who will put you to sleep will visit. They will explain certain aspects of the procedure and of the immediate postoperative care you will receive at the Intensive Care Unit. You will be asked to sign a form confirming that you understand why the procedure needs to be performed, the risks of the procedure and that you agree to the surgery.

You should make changes in your lifestyle to help avert the chances to further damage your arteries. If you don’t, you are at increased risk for a heart attack, a stroke or problems with the circulation to your feet.

These changes include:

  • Quitting smoking completely
  • Exercising aerobically, such as brisk walking, for 25 to 30 minutes daily
  • Maintaining your ideal body weight
