Novel Advancements In The Treatment Of Aortic Aneurysm


Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)– and transcatheter aortic valve  replacement (TAVR)–associated acute kidney injury - Kidney International

Endovascular aneurysm repair with smaller incisions, less pain and faster recovery time.

An aortic aneurysm is a bulging or dilation in the wall of the aorta which is a major blood vessel that carries blood from heart to body, that is due to weakness or degeneration that develops in a portion of the aortic wall. Aortic aneurysms include: Endovascular aneurysm

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm: occurs along the part of the aorta that passes through the abdomen.
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm: occurs along the part of the aorta that passes through the chest cavity.

An aneurysm might enlarge and the wall of the aorta cannot stretch any further. At this point, an aneurysm is at risk of rupturing and causing  potentially fatal conditions.  If ruptured aortic aneurysm could not be accurately diagnosed and effectively treated in time, it can cause life-threatening internal bleeding which leads to the increased chances of sudden death. Therefore, timely and effective treatment for aortic aneurysm does not only play a major role in the reduction of mortality rates but it also significantly enhances long-term improvements of patient’s quality of life.

Surgical outcomes substantially result in a shorter recovery time with less pain and lower complications. However, not all aneurysms are suitable for endovascular repair. The location or size of the aneurysm in some patients may prevent a stent graft from being safely or reliably placed inside the aneurysm. In this case, open surgery might be advised.
