Hi!
There are two types of surgery options: open abdominal, and endovascular. If your doctor decides you are the right candidate for open abdominal surgery, he will order pre-op tests to check your health status. You will be seen by an anesthesia specialist, and examined for anesthesia fitness. After admission to hospital you will be not be given anything by mouth for 12 hours before operation. During operation, through a large cut in your chest or belly,, your aneurysm will be removed and the damaged portion of your blood vessel will be replaced with a man-made graft.
In the endovascular repair a stent is placed in the aorta to by-pass the blood from not going into aneurysm. The abdominal aorta is reached through an artery in your groin. This is a less invasive surgery with shorter hospital stay and recovery period. However, not all candidates are suitable for this.
Take care!
