“..An aortic aneurysm is an enlargement of the main vessel (that is bigger than a garden hose) leaving your heart that supplies the majority of the blood to the whole body. The large vessel develops a weakening in the wall and expands, much like a damaged garden hose, before it ruptures. It is known as a silent killer, since often previous symptoms are not exhibited. (Actors John Ritter and Alan Thicke died of aortic dissections.)..”

“..develop when an area of weakening occurs in the wall of the blood vessel. While aneurysms can occur in any artery in the body, the aorta seems more susceptible to aneurysms than other vessels.

This is likely because the heart pumps blood directly into the aorta, so this artery is subjected to higher pressures and more stress than other arteries. So, if the wall of the aorta is weakened for any reason, an aneurysm is particularly likely to occur.

Common Causes

Several pathologies can cause part of the aortic wall to become weak, leading to the formation of an aneurysm.

How to Stop an Aneurysm in its Tracks By Chris Iliades, MD .everydayhealth.com
“…If you’re an older guy, a quick and easy test that screens for an abdominal aortic aneurysm could be a lifesaver. The screening checks for a weakness in the wall of the biggest artery in your body. If this weakness is present, the artery can balloon out and eventually rupture. The severe internal bleeding that results can cause shock or even death..

How Screening Is Done

The test used to diagnose an abdominal aortic aneurysm is called an abdominal ultrasound. It uses sound waves to create an image of your abdominal aorta.

A normal aorta is about 1 inch wide. “If part of the abdominal aorta is close to 2 inches wide, an aneurysm can be diagnosed,” said Newcomb….

I came across this pdf on the web while looking for a way to reverse my father’s AAA. Since it’s Lent now i’ve managed to get my dad and mum on a vegan diet. I’m supplementing with b12 but not epa/dha. I’d like to supplement but I’m not sure if it would hurt him more. Is it ok to supplement epa/dha? I’ve noticed that my father feels abdominal pain a few hours after a meal with turmeric in it. How often should I give turmeric to him? I’m limiting it to only a few times a week.

I am a 67 yr. old wht. female. In 2005 I had the first half of a surg. to replace my entire Aorta. In May 2006 I had the other half. The doctor replaced my Aorta with a dacron tubing. Seven yrs. later I have developed a leak in the subclavian artery. In May 2012, a stint was placed to stop the leaking artery that created an 8.9 aneurysm. At this time I have to go to Duke for another evaluation. Are there others out there with the same problem?

Interesting! My mother had what her internist called a “huge” abdominal aortic aneurysm, diiscovered when she was in her mid-80s. She was a heart attack survivor (during her early 70s) who was amazingly active for her age, and lived alone at home. I was with her when she asked her internist what kind of death she would have if the aneurysm burst, and he explained. She said, “That sounds like a fairly decent way to die,” and opted to do nothing about it. She lived to 94, still very active, dying from breast cancer that wasn’t diagnosed until she was 93. (She refused all treatment for that, too, and continued making daily meals for the “little old ladies” (most of whom were in their 60s and early 70s) who lived in her condo development, until 3 months before her death.

I recently survived two cardiac arrests while at Mayo (great CPR), so perhaps her fabulous genes were partly responsible, or maybe it was the 100+ friends who prayed for me as well as for her. At any rate, It’s good to know the advances in treatment for AAA..Thanks

Long-term survival from abdominal aortic aneurysm repair improving medicalxpress.com
“..In the new study, researchers examined patient outcomes of 8,663 operations to repair intact aneurysms and 4,171 to repair ruptured ones from 1987 to 2005. The researchers used the patients’ relative five-year survival rate as a key measure. That rate excluded patients who died within 90 days of surgery and was based on a comparison of expected survival rates in a broader population with the same demographic characteristics.

Among patients whose intact aneurysms were repaired during the 18 years of the study, the relative five-year survival rate was 90.3 percent, with patients surviving an average of almost nine years after surgery. ..

Advances in postoperative care have helped improve both short- and long-term outcomes for patients with intact aneurysms who undergo repair, Mani said. Furthermore, a less-invasive surgical technique known as endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has allowed surgical repair for greater numbers of older patients with additional health problems. ..”

Abdominal Aortic Surgery | Ron Rolett’s Story

Johns Hopkins Medicine
Published on Jul 2, 2013
Ronald Rolett, a retired physician from North Carolina, learned that he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm from a routine ultrasound screening. He then had follow-up ultrasound tests every six months until it had reached a critical size. Rolett became the first patient at The Johns Hopkins Hospital – and at any hospital in the mid-Atlantic region – to have an aneurysm repaired in a minimally invasive way using a graft that was made to fit his specific anatomy. He tells his story about the procedure, recovery and experience with Johns Hopkins Vascular Surgery.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair Surgery: What to Expect at Home myhealth.alberta.ca

“..Aortic aneurysm repair is surgery to fix a weak and bulging section of the aorta. The aorta is the large blood vessel (artery) that carries blood from the heart through the belly to the rest of the body. The doctor used a man-made tube, called a graft, to replace the weak section of your aorta in your belly.

You can expect the cut (incision) in your belly to be sore for a few weeks. The doctor will take the stitches out of your incision about 5 to 10 days after surgery.

You will feel more tired than usual for several weeks after surgery. You may be able to do many of your usual activities after 4 to 6 weeks. But you will probably need 2 to 3 months to fully recover.

For 6 weeks, it is important to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting. These activities will not hurt the graft in your aorta, but they may cause problems with the incision in your belly.

Some people find that they feel sad or more emotional than usual while they are recovering after this surgery. This may last for up to 6 weeks after surgery. Talk with your doctor if your sadness continues or if you hav..”

“..Activity

Rest when you feel tired. Getting enough sleep will help you recover.
Try to walk each day. Start by walking a little more than you did the day before. Bit by bit, increase the amount you walk. Walking boosts blood flow and helps prevent pneumonia and constipation….”

Diet

*see “Health: Nutrition-Foods to Know About” goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com


You can eat your normal diet. If your stomach is upset, try bland, low-fat foods like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt.

You may not feel as hungry as usual, or food may not taste as good as it usually does. This is common and usually gets better about 4 weeks after surgery. If you do not feel like eating, you may want to drink liquid meal replacements for extra calories and protein. This can help you keep up your strength and prevent weight loss.

Drink plenty of fluids (unless your doctor tells you not to).
You may notice that your bowel movements are not regular right after your surgery. This is common. Try to avoid constipation …,

“..In August 2010, I came home from the hospital having survived endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery. I was fortunate to have received an abdominal aortic stent graft, which saved my life. To be honest, I was in a state of shock. Everything went so fast, from Ironman triathlete to aortic aneurysm patient in a matter of weeks. My problem was that I needed guidance and inspiration from someone who’d been there before. In fact, I really needed this manual, which would have helped me to handle my fear, taken me to helpful resources, and put me back on track with my Ironman training without all the concerns I suffered at that time and subsequently.

Fear is the biggest challenge.

I wrote this guide for the Kevin Morgan (FitOldDog) of August 2010, in the hope of helping those who are forced to follow me down this interesting and scary road. Maybe I was lucky with the outcome, but this kind of encouragement is essential for all of us…”
