Aortic Aneurysm Repair


Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair in Hawaii

If you are a resident of Hawaii and have suffered aortic aneurysms you could be a candidate for this surgery.

An aortic aneurysm is an enlargement or weakened area of a large artery of the chest or abdomen. Aortic aneurysms can eventually cause a rupture or dissection (tearing) requiring emergency surgery. New techniques for aortic aneurysm repair have been developed to place stents in these arteries before rupture or dissection can occur. Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) and endo-vascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repairs are minimally invasive procedures in which transcatheter placement of a stent graft into the area of the aneurysm is performed.  The physician will determine which procedure is most appropriate to treat aortic aneurysms.
