Endovascular Aortic Stenting
Aortic Aneurysms & the Benefits of EAS
Endovascular aortic stenting (EAS) is a surgical procedure that is used
to repair aortic aneurysms. If left untreated, aneurysms can result in
a burst aorta, which will require emergency medical treatment and is a
potentially fatal complication. Our skilled Los Angeles cardiovascular
surgeon at the office of Azmi Atiya MD has the experience to surgically
treat this serious condition.
Because of the severity aneurysms, it is very important to seek medical
testing and attention. The EAS procedure is designed to prevent the aneurysm
from bursting, and is done inside of the aorta using a thin tube called
a delivery catheter.
Some of the benefits of endovascular aortic stenting include:
- Minimal invasion compared to open surgery, as it requires only a few small incisions
- Short operation time, typically only taking two to four hours to complete
- Shorter recovery times in comparison to open surgery
- The ability to return to normal daily activities in four to six weeks
Providing Effective & Quality Surgical Care
Depending on the shape of the aneurysm, its proximity to other vital organs,
its size, your symptoms, and a variety of other factors, EAS may be an
effective treatment option for you. There is a risk for a few complications
during the procedure including rupture of the aneurysm or aorta, blood
leakage, blood flow blockage, infection, and other surgical risks.
At the office of Azmi Atiya MD, our surgeons can sit down with you during
your initial consultation to help understand your specific situation and
determine if this procedure is the most effective choice for dealing with
your aneurysm. Our priority is to ensure that you are well-informed before
making a decision. We provide the highest quality of care before, during,
and after the operation.
