Treatments for Aortic aneurysm

Treatment List for Aortic aneurysm

The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Aortic aneurysm includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

  • Treatment of aortic aneurysms is influenced by the location of the aneurysm (thoracic or abdominal), the size of the aneurysm, whether the aneurysm has leaked or not (emergency rather than elective management), as well as the age, treatment preferences, and other health problems of the patient. Treatments include:
    • Observation - Often utilised with abdominal aneurysms < 5.5cm diameter
    • Aggressive control of risk factors - smoking cessation, control of high blood pressure and lipids
    • ICU supportive therapy for leaking aneurysms
    • Surgery
    • Palliative management concentrating in symptom control rather than active intervention - utilised if there has been a severe bleed and quality of life is unlikely to result from intervention, or if the patients age and comorbidities preclude surgery
