Cardiologists at the Texas Heart Institute were among the first to use a nonsurgical technique to treat high-risk patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms. The procedure uses a catheter to insert a device called a stent graft. The stent graft is placed within the artery at the site of the aneurysm. The blood flows through the stent graft, decreasing the pressure on the wall of the weakened artery. This decrease in pressure can prevent the aneurysm from bursting.

75% of aortic aneurysms are abdominal aortic aneurysms (formed in the abdominal section of the aorta), while only 25% of aortic aneurysms are thoracic aortic aneurysms (formed in the chest/thoracic section). Aortic aneurysms are considered fatal because they can continue to expand and eventually burst, causing severe internal bleeding that can lead to sudden death. Call (813) 377-2773 to schedule an aneurysm screening. https://www.tampavascularsurgeon.com/arterial-disease/aortic-aneurysms/
