Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the aorta (the main blood vessel coming from the heart) in the abdomen. When the wall of an artery becomes weak, it can dilate (enlarge), increasing the possibility that it may rupture. Surgery to repair the aneurysm involves grafting (stitching) a synthetic tube into the aorta to replace and strengthen the weakened area.
