Aortic aneurysm repair – endovascular
Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair is a surgery to repair a widened area in your aorta, surgery known as aortic valve replacement surgery. This is called an aneurysm. The aorta is the large artery that carries blood to your belly, pelvis, and legs. Let us diagnose this with one of the best facilities for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery in Mumbai.
An aortic aneurysm is when a part of this artery becomes too large or balloons outward. It occurs due to weakness in the wall of the artery.
This procedure is done in an operating room, in the radiology department of the hospital, or in a catheterization lab. You will lie on a padded table. You may receive general anesthesia (you are asleep and pain-free) or epidural or spinal anesthesia.
- Your doctor will make a small surgical cut near the groin, to find the femoral artery. Then your doctor will insert a stent (a metal coil) and a manmade (synthetic) graft through the cut into the artery.
- The doctor uses x-rays to guide the stent graft up into your aorta, to where the aneurysm is located. The doctor will open the stent using a spring-like mechanism and attach it to the walls of the aorta. Your aneurysm will eventually shrink around it.
- The doctor will then use x-rays again to make sure the stent is in the right place and your aneurysm is not bleeding inside your body.
