The aorta is the main blood vessel from the heart to the entire body. Its enlargement, called an aneurysm, can cause it to burst, which can be life-threatening. Patients with this problem often, but not always, feel their heartbeat pounding in their abdomen. It is diagnosed with a physical exam and CT scan of the abdomen. Dr. Kronson repairs aneurysms with an endovascular technique in the operating room. This incision-free procedure involves using catheters, wires, and stent-grafts to divert the blood away from the diseased aortic aneurysm. Patients usually spend one night in the hospital before going home the next day. Recovery time for this procedure is 1-2weeks. Dr. Kronson has been employing this technique for over 20 years and has successfully performed over 500 of these procedures.
