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.
