How is this Diagnosed ?
Often discovered during an x-ray, ultrasound, or echocardiogram done for other purposes.
Endoluminal graft repair (ELG) – Is a minimally invasive procedure performed within the artery using thin tubes called catheters. The catheters are threaded through small incisions in the groin into the vessels where a stent is deployed to increase the blood flow through the vessel.
Open Aneurysm Repair – During open aneurysm repair procedure, the weakened, bulging part of your artery is replaced with a tube-like graft passed through the vessel, which allows us to bypass the aneurysm.
