About Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Aortic Aneurysm occurs when a part of aorta becomes too large or balloons outward. Aorta is a large artery that carries blood to the stomach area of the body, pelvis and legs. Generally, this condition occurs due to weakness in the wall of the artery. A procedure to repair a ballooned area in the aorta is Aortic Aneurysm Repair.

It is also called Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair or AAA Repair. The procedure can be performed in 2 ways

  • Open Surgery
  • Endovascular Graft Stenting

More Information on Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Indication

Aortic Aneursym develops gradually over a period of time, often without any symptoms. AAA Repair is recommended when the aneurysm is very large (more than 2 inches), growing rapidly (more than 1/4th inch in 6 to 8 months) or bleeding.

Symptoms may include

  • Pain in abdomen or back. In some cases, pain may radiate downwards.
  • Vomitting
  • Rapid Heart Rate
  • Dizziness

In most cases, the doctor will recommend Endovascular Repair as compared to an Open Surgery.


Pre-Procedure

Before the procedure, the doctor will recommend

  • Strictly stop smoking, in case the patient is a smoker
  • Stop taking blood thinning medications, 8 to 10 days before the procedure
  • Fasting 8 to 10 hours prior to the surgery

During-Procedure

Open Surgery

  • The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and can take upto 2 to 4 hours.
  • Then the surgeon will make a large incision in from the breast bone to the belly button.
  • The aneursym is replaced with with a long synthetic graft – a cloth-like material. In some cases, the ends of the graft will be moved through blood vessels in each groin and attached to those in the leg.
  • After replacing the aneursym, both the legs are checked for proper blood flow and pulse.
  • The incision is then sutured.

Endovascular Repair

  • The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, and can take upto 1 to 3 hours.
  • The surgeon will make a small incision in the groin region to access the femoral artery.
  • A stent and a synthetic graft are inserted into the artery, and guided the up into the aorta to where the aneurysm is located.
  • The stent is opened using a spring-like mechanism and attached to the walls of the aorta.
  • The aneurysm will eventually shrink around it.
  • Using X-rays, the doctor will ensure that the stent is in the right place and the aneurysm is not bleeding inside the body.

Post-Procedure

After the surgery, the patient is monitored in ICU for 1 to 2 days. The patient has to stay in hospital for 5 to 10 days after the surgery. Recovery is faster in endovascular repair than in open surgery.

After discharge, the doctor will recommend to

  • Wear special sock or stockings to prevent clotting of blood in the legs
  • Avoid any strenuous activity for 6 to 8 weeks
  • Get Ultrasound tests done every 6 months to check the recurrence of aneursym

Risk and Complication

Aortic Aneursym Repair is a risky procedure. Risks for this procedure include

  • Damage to a nerve, causing weakness, pain, or numbness in the leg
  • Kidney failure
  • Less supply of blood to legs, kidneys or other organs
  • Erectile Dysfucntion
  • Stent slippage
  • Heart attack, in rare cases
  • Breathing problems
