Aneurysm treatment

An aneurysm is a localised weak spot in the wall of a blood vessel that causes bulging of the diseased area. It is can be a hereditary occurrence but more often it is acquired and requires treatment to avoid a rupture, as this is serious.

Endovascular aneurysm treatment – This is a treatment that involves inserting a metal and fabric tube called a stent directly into the blood vessel to strengthen the weak section of the wall.

Open aneurysm treatment – This involves replacing the diseased segment of the aorta with a graft through an incision on the abdomen
