My cousin was just diagnosed with a thoracic aortic aneurysm 7.5cm. Have any of you had this successfully treated wuth surgery? Thank you all. She will see a cardiac surgeon Thursday. She is scared. I will write her results here after.
ANERUSYM MEANS ABNORMAL DILATION OF BLOOD VESSELS.IT CAN HAVE DIFFERENT SITES OF ORIGIN THORACIC,ABDOMINAL ,FEMORAL ETC,THE SURGERY is not always required but proper evaluation is a must.
there is no need to be scared for any disease,medical expertise can rid almost all pathologies.
