When the Aneurysm Grows Fast




Barry Katzen, Founder and Chief Medical Executive at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, explains since 1999 there are devices approved for treating aneurysms from the inside rather than having to make incisions to get to the aneurysm. These are called endovascular approaches or stent grafts.

He says the goal of treatment is to exclude the aneurysm from the circulation, so it does not mean to take the aneurysm out, but to make sure it is not going to rupture.
