FAQ about Aortic aneurysm Treatment
Diagnostics of aortic aneurysm
Physicians utilize the following methods of diagnostics to determine the stage of the disease:
- CT scan;
- chest X-ray.
The abdominal aortic aneurysm screening cost depends on diagnostic method, physician qualification, and hospital accreditation. During the diagnostics physicians locate the aneurysm and determine if the operation is needed.
Aortic aneurysm treatment options
Non-surgical management of aortic aneurysm comes down to maintaining low blood pressure of a patient. Drugs can’t cure the condition, but prevent aneurysm from further advancing. Doctors advise patients to quit bad habits, such as smoking. Every 6-12 months physicians carry out a diagnostic to control patient’s condition.
Aortic repair using graft tube
Physicians evaluate all risks considering surgery as one of the abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment options. The key factor is the probability of vessel rupture. The surgery is performed as soon as тon-surgical management ceases to be effective and the risk of rupture is above 20%. There are 2 types of procedures:
- Open surgery. During the intervention physicians expose dilated part of the vessel by making incisions in the abdomen and/or the neck. Doctors replace diseased section of the aorta with a special synthetic graft tube. Healthy ends of the vessel are sewn to the graft by hand. Aneurysmal tissue is closed around the synthetic tube.
- Endovascular surgery. This procedure presumes placing of the stent in aneurysm location. The operation is minimally-invasive, it puts patient’s body under less stress and requires shorter hospital stay. However, additional operations may be required later if a patient doesn’t change their lifestyle. Long-term survival rate for both operations is the same.
Aortic aneurysm repair cost depends on the type of performed operation, qualification of medical staff, and patient’s condition. Additional drugs administered to patient in case of complications may also influence the cost of ascending aortic aneurysm repair.
Endovascular aneurysm stenting
Endovascular surgery is the same-day operation, meaning that a patient is dismissed from a clinic on the day of the procedure in most cases. After open surgery patient is placed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for 1-4 days. In-hospital stay lasts for 2 weeks. Full rehabilitation takes 3-6 months. Both of the heart aneurysm treatment options require patients to return to their normal activities gradually.
With timely diagnostics and effective treatment over 90% of the patients return to their normal lives with minimal lifestyle alteration. General recommendations to prevent progression of the disease include quitting smoking and drinking, scheduling exercise routines, and maintaining healthy diet.
