Aortic Aneurysm - Treatment
Aortic Aneurysm Frequency
Each year, about 15,000 people in the United States die of a ruptured abdominal aneurysm. This makes it the 13th leading cause of death in this country.
Most aneurysms occur in people aged 55 years or older. The number of aneurysms in the United States is increasing as the population increases and ages. Aneurysms are four times more common in men than in women.
Surgical Repair of Aortic Aneurysms
When detected in time, most aneurysms can be electively repaired with cardiac surgery so they do not rupture. But even in a case of emergency surgery, St. Vincent’s surgeons possess the skill and experience to offer the best possible outcomes to patients. See Cardiovascular /Cardiothoracic Surgery.
