Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Surgery in Indore

A thoracic aortic aneurysm is an abnormal bulge in the weakened wall of the aorta in the chest area, that can lead to several problems that can be life-threatening. Serious risks can be eradicated with timely diagnosis and treatment of thoracic aneurysm.

According to studies, the lack of information and awareness has led to a large number of deaths caused due to untreated large thoracic aneurysms of the aorta. But, once detected at an early stage we can easily resolve it with a proven set of surgical procedures and medical management, here is how:

Treatment

To decide the best treatment for the thoracic aneurysm of the aorta we follow several procedures that depend on its size and rate of growth, location, and your overall health.

Medical Management

If a thoracic aneurysm is small and causes no symptoms, we can put you under observation and start treating your condition using medicine.

  • Close monitoring of aneurysm with CT or MRI scans every 6 months.
  • Blood pressure medication to control high blood pressure and decrease pressure on the weakened area of the aneurysm.
  • Restriction of some physical activities.

Surgery

  • The decision to treat a thoracic aneurysm with surgery is determined by many symptoms, like
    If an aneurysm is growing more than 1 centimeter (cm) per year.
  • Signs of an aortic dissection
  • Age of patient and patient’s overall medical condition.

How is a thoracic aortic aneurysm treated with surgery?

The current standard surgical treatment of a thoracic aortic aneurysm is an open heart approach. The main purpose of open-chest surgery is to treat thoracic aneurysms by replacing the weakened portion of the aorta with a fabric tube called a graft.

We can help you repair a thoracic aneurysm which is a surgical complicated process. The condition should now be neglected.

Preoperative evaluation

To help ensure the best results of thoracic aneurysm surgery, you will undergo a preoperative evaluation to check for atherosclerosis which is the hardening of the arteries that damages the artery walls.
This includes:

  1. Screening of left ventricular
  2. Ultrasound Examination
  3. Pulmonary Function Testing using a spirometer
  4. Endocardiography for Aortic Valve Involvement
  5. CECT Scan for chest.
