What are abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA)?
An aneurysm in the abdomen occurs when the walls of the aorta have weakened and the diameter of the aorta has increased. The size of the AAA matters because the result could lead to a total rupture, complete blockage, or the blood flow cut off to a certain area of the body.
What will I learn in this video about AAAs?
You will learn about abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), what causes them, and how our vascular surgeons treat this condition. Once an AAA has been diagnosed, there are a number of vascular treatments, including open and minimally invasive surgical options and these are discussed extensively so that our patients know what to expect of their treatment and why PVA is the right choice for aneurysm repair.
