Suggest prognosis after the surgery for swollen aorta

my brother had a swelled aorta and was about to burst, they didnt want to operate but were forced to anyway. they repaired the aorta, when they opened him up blood went every where. lost about 3-4 liters of blood. he was in surgery for 6 hours. he still hasnt been awake yet and in 4 days we are to decide among our family what decisions to make. My brother walked out of the house down the steps and got on the gurney and they put him in the ambulance. I was expecting to get him back the same way. he is 71 years old.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would like to tell you that chest pain with breathing difficulties can be because of arrhythmia it CAD if she has a very strong cardiac family history, so is recommended for her to get an angiography as well then consult a cardiologist.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
