Aneurysm repair information and locations in Mexico

An aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge that appears in the blood vessel. This bulge occurs when the blood passes through a weak part of the arteries forcing the walls to push outward.
An aneurysm repair consists of replacing the weakened part of the vessel with a biocompatible stent graft (mesh-like tube). Not all aneurysms require surgery, if they are located in the lower chest or below the stomach the specialist will recommend careful watching.
Surgery will be advised on aneurysm measuring almost 2 inches or that are located in the upper chest.

Surgical approach for aneurysm repair

Endovascular repair - EVAR
A minimally invasive form of surgery, in which a catheter is inserted in the groin or arm to reach the affected area, then a stent graft is placed in the artery. The stent will help to minimize the pressure around the vessel and prevent it from bursting.
Open repair
A large incision is made on the abdomen or chest, then the affected is removed and replaced with a stent graft. This type of surgery is recommended if the aneurysm doesn’t allow an endovascular repair.

Aneurysm repair frequent questions

Get answers to our most frequently asked questions and what to expect after the surgery.
Am I a candidate for aneurysm repair?
Not all aneurysms are life-threatening, however, if they increase the size can lead to a rupture. We recommend you to refer to one of our professional doctors for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
Which kind of surgery do I need?
Depends on the aneurysm, some patients might not be eligible for a minimally invasive surgery at all.
How do I prepare for the procedure?
Your specialist will perform an examination to learn about your medical history. You will be asked to stop taking some medications and avoid eating after midnight before your surgery.
What happens after the procedure?
You’ll be taken to a recovery room right after surgery. On both procedures, you’ll be placed in the intensive care unit for a couple of days. Your doctor will provide you with a guide to make lifestyle changes.
How long will recovery take?
Open surgery requires longer recovery times; it takes at least 6 weeks before you can return to work. On a minimally invasive procedure, you need a shorter recovery, as no large incisions are made, often taking only weeks.
