An aneurysm is a ballooning of the wall of an artery, which often develops over time. It often is associated with age and high blood pressure. Sometimes the aneurysm can result from an injury or previous procedure. The risk of having an aneurysm is that it may burst, causing significant internal bleeding which may be life threatening. Aneurysms can occur in almost any artery in the body, and are often managed with regular scans to monitor the size, which may or may not increase, and treatment if it gets to a relatively large size.
At Yarra Vascular Surgeons, we treat arterial aneurysms via a number of techniques, including endovascular, open surgery and/or medical management. For smaller aneurysms, we regularly monitor the size of the aneurysm via ultrasound to determine if surgical treatment is required. After an aneurysm is repaired, we ensure the intervention remains optimised with regular follow up appointments and ultrasound scans to monitor the repair.
