Treating an Aneurysm
Barry Katzen, Founder and Chief Medical Executive at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, says most aneurysms do not rupture and many of them are very small. “If you have a small aneurysm in your aorta, we recommend follow-up surveillance, most often with ultrasound,” he explains.
He points out as the aneurysm gets bigger, he needs a more precise way of evaluating size and that can happen with a CT scan. It is important to seek a doctor to get the treatment recommended.
