Aortic Aneurysm Repair
Treatments Related to Aortic Aneurysm Repair
While surgery is a good option for some patients, non-surgical related treatments to aortic aneurysm repair may also be recommended depending on the severity of the condition and the patient’s overall health. Medications may be prescribed depending on the cause of the aneurysm, including prescriptions that reduce high blood pressure and hyperlipidemia.
Lifestyle changes are related treatments that may also help control the severity of the aneurysm. Losing weight (if obese), changing the diet and stopping smoking may slow the progression of the condition.
For other patients, doctors may recommend yearly MRI and CT scan to monitor the progression of the condition before recommending treatment.
