The presence of an aortic aneurysm can be determined through an X-Ray, Ultrasound, CT (Computed Tomography) Scan, MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiogram), Echocardiogram, or Angiogram.
The Board Certified Vascular Surgeons at The Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay can quickly and easily determine if you have started to develop an aortic aneurysm through a simple vascular ultrasound.
We will be able to identify its exact location, its size, whether or not it is growing, how fast it is growing and we will also determine if there are any aortic dissections or blood clots associated with the aneurysm.
Depending on many factors regarding the aneurysm, including its size, rate of growth as well as the medical history and age of the patient, the most appropriate treatment will be determined.
Most often, our vascular specialists are able to use minimally invasive techniques to treat aortic aneurysm in our outpatient endovascular surgery suite at our Tampa vascular clinic.
