When should you see a vascular surgeon?
If you have been diagnosed with an aneurysm. An aneurysm is an enlargement of an artery. It can occur in the chest, abdomen or extremities. An aneurysm can be diagnosed with an ultrasound, a CT scan, or an MRI. In some aneurysms, as they enlarge, the wall of the artery becomes progressively thin and can lead to life-threatening rupture. This is typical of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Other aneurysms, usually found in the extremities, can clot causing acute lack of circulation to the limb and possible amputation. Vascular surgeons know which types are likely to rupture and which are likely to clot. They know how to determine when complications may occur. A vascular surgeon can tell you whether an aneurysm needs to be repaired when it has been diagnosed, or whether it is safe to monitor it. Multiple methods of repair are available. Should repair be required, a vascular surgeon can guide you in making the right choice for the method used. Only vascular surgeons are able to perform all possible types of repair.
