Endovascular Repair of descending Thoracic Aneurysms

Female doctor holding patient fileThis is a minimally invasive procedure to prevent aneurysm rupture. Your surgeon will insert an endoprosthetic device similar to a collapsible mesh tube through a small puncture in a leg artery. The prosthetic will be advanced to the site of the aneurysm where it is deployed in place. Blood will now flow freely through the prosthetic decreasing pressure on the surrounding arterial walls thereby minimizing aneursym rupture.
