An aneurysm is a condition referring to the widening of the aorta. Diagnosed aneurysms thinner than 5 cm are treated pharmaceutically. Patients with such a condition need to undergo annual medical check-ups to monitor disease progression and take action in time. Thoracic aortic aneurysm surgery costs are higher than medicines, but surgery allows to achieve long-lasting effect. Pharmaceutical treatment does not cure the disease completely.

Indications and contraindications for aortic aneurysm surgery

Surgeons consider operation to treat aortic aneurysm when following indications are present:

  • deceased part of the aorta is wider than 5 cm;
  • pharmaceutical management methods are not effective;
  • risk of rupture due to thinning of vessel walls or other cardiovascular conditions is above 15%;
  • a patient suffers from aortic dissection.

There are following contraindications for the procedure:

  • severe or recurrent infections (HIV, hepatitis);
  • poor overall health condition;
  • blood clotting pathologies such as anemia.

Types of aortic surgeries

There are two main ways to treat the disease surgically. Aneurysm surgery cost varies depending on the type of the operation and used screening method.

Minimally-invasive surgery is carried out in a catheterization laboratory. Physicians use a thin tube called a catheter to deliver the stent to aneurysm location. A patient is given general anesthesia before the operation.A catheter with an attached stent is inserted into the femoral artery in patient’s groin area. Surgeons use screening equipment to place the stent in aneurysm section. When it is fixated, a catheter tube is pulled out from the vein, concluding the operation. The procedure lasts 2-3 hours and requires 1-2 days of hospitalization.

Thoracic aortic aneurysm surgery cost depends on the stent type, additional administered medications (if any), screening method utilized, and surgeons’ qualification.

Aortic stenting process

Aortic stenting process

Open-chest surgery is performed by a team of physicians. A patient is under general anesthesia. To access damaged section of the aorta, surgeons make an incision in patient’s chest. Physicians replace dilated part of the vessel with a synthetic graft. Excess tissues remaining from damaged artery are closed around the graft. Surgeons perform this operation urgently for patients with aortic splitting.

Aortic dissection surgery cost tends to be higher due to additional used pharmaceutical agents and extended postoperative care.

The operation lasts for 3-6 hours. Patients are rushed to the Intensive Care Unit after the procedure, where they stay for 2-5 days until their vitals stabilize. Then a patient is transferred to a regular ward for 10-14 days. Complete rehabilitation takes 2-3 months.

The patient was consulted in this clinic

Normal clinic, did not see anything special. They prescribed good medicines, I felt better. There were also very good translators. It is better to always be insured, because if there is insurance, the clinic offers a 50% discount.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

The format is quite simple, everything is accessible and understandable, the doctor is very qualified. I will not say that we talked about clinical studies, there was no definitive information. We are happy, time has been spent, the translator also translated everything correctly. The doctor explained everything popularly, we received an answer to all the questions we asked. I believe that what you are doing is very important and useful for people who need help.

The patient underwent rhinoplasty

Passed online consultation. After the consultation, a treatment plan was created, which we will undergo, further consultations will continue. Online consultation is very convenient and of course there were some doubts, especially when the invoice was billed, because it was a bit confusing, there was only one seal, so I advise you to make the documents more official, so that you would not be so scared to pay for the consultation.
