How Can Ectasia Of The Thoracic Aorta Be Treated?

My husband had a chest x ray and it stated that the descending thoracic aorta is markedly ectatic. He has an abdominal aneurysm which is very small and has not enlarged in 9 years. He is seen on a regular basis by a vascular surgeon who checks the aneurysm. What do you suggest.

Hi,

According to the history you provide I would recommend him to continue
regular follow up appointments with his doctor. Nothing more can be done, we need to wait and see.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
