Aortic Aneurysm is the bulging of Aorta in the left ventricle of the heart which passes through abdomen cavities and chest. There are two types of Aortic Aneurysm
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
The aneurysm formed in the portion of aorta in the abdomen cavity is known as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. SIMS has got specialized treatments for an aortic aneurysm. 4 to 8 percent of people are getting affected by this disease.
The normal size of Abdominal Aorta will be 3 and 3.5cms and those which is above it is considered as rupture. The Abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment is done with EVAR stent grafting. It is also called as AAA.

Depending on the aorta’s size and bulges, there may be internal bleeding inside the artery which may cause a rupture. This will be mistaken for heart attack in most of the cases. An abdominal aortic rupture can be identified with the following symptoms.
If AAA ruptures it may lead to
Abdominal Aortic Treatment at SIMS
Most aneurysms are identified only during the screening. We at SIMS recommend ultrasound test for screening abdominal aortic aneurysms and can further proceed with treatment or surgery depending on the condition of the aneurysm.
Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm
Thoracic aortic aneurysm occurs in the part of the aorta that permits through the chest above diaphragm. Like abdominal aneurysm, thoracic aortic aneurysm does not show much indications and only 50 percent have got symptoms of the thoracic aneurysm. It is denoted as TAA.
1 in 4 aortic aneurysms is identified in the thoracic region of the aorta. The major causes apart from the symptoms of abdominal aneurysm are
Symptoms of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm
Only 50 percent of patients who have thoracic aortic aneurysm notice any indications of the disease. The common identified symptoms are
If a Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm ruptures it will lead to
