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 -AAA repair
- 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
