Aortic Aneurysm Repair
Survivability of Aortic Aneurysm Repair
The survivability of aortic aneurysm repair can vary depending on a patient’s overall health and the type of surgical procedure recommended for the repair. The open surgical procedure usually involves more risks than the minimally invasive endovascular surgery.
If not treated, the aortic aneurysm can become a life-threatening emergency. The prognosis for patients with surgery to repair the aneurysm is between 90 and 95 percent, depending on the procedure.
Each patient’s prognosis is different. Speak to a doctor at Florida Hospital to find out about what you can expect from surgery. Schedule an appointment today.
