Aortic Aneurysms


 

Aortic aneurysms are the abnormal dilation of the great artery Aorta with supplies blood to the whole body by its several branches. Aortic surgery is a very complex form of operation and it requires trained TEAM effort. The team at Sir H.N. Hospital has vast experience in doing complex aortic operations. It has been observed throughout the world that a trained Team can reduce the mortality in aortic aneurysm surgery. Aortic surgery requires to cool the patients body tempratures ( Just like polar bear does in winter) and then further stop the circulation for few minutes till the surgeon replaces diseased aorta. This surgery offers new lease of life to affected patients who have potential to rupture of aneurysm which is fatal.

Newer technologies have evolved to manage these patients safely and we are fortunate to have trained team in this regard. We also offer ENDOVASCULAR repair of aortic aneurysm in selected patients in whom aortic stents can be put by small incisions in groin.
