How do you deal with an ascending aortic aneurysm?


My sister has an ascending aortic aneurysm measuring 5.3 cm. It hasn't grown over the past year. She quit smoking when it was diagnosed, but is lethargic, overweight, and suffering from anxiety. She put off surgery in order to loose weight and because the aneurysm hasn't grown. But she panics whenever she experiences an "odd" feeling. I don't know how to help her.
----------

D...she needs this surgery 5.3 is big enough...I had mine fixed at 5.0 and I also had my aortic valve replaced at the same time. Do you guys have Bicuspid aortic valves...its a common occurence to have these 2 things together. The bicuspid foundation has a lot of info about ascending aortic aneurysms.

Here are a couple of web sites that will give you a lot of info you can trust.

A valve replacement may not be actually what she is needing at the moment but many people on there had both surgeries done (like me) at the same time to save another surgery in 10 yrs time to fix the valve. It will give you both a lot of useful info to think about.

I was not at all scared when I went for my surgery, I was actually excited to get that aneurysm gone so I wasnt in danger from it.  (+ info)

Can a ruptured brain aneurysm cause violent or aggressive behavior?


If a person suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm, can this trigger a change in their behavior? There was no violent behavior before the bleeding. After the healing process was basically over, the person became very violent and aggressive and abusive, can this be a side effect of the ruptured aneurysm?
----------

Depends on what part of the brain the bleed is in, but the answer is definitely yes, especially if its in the frontal lobe which controls personality, but it could be anywhere. Hormones are also controlled by the brain and if the bleed is putting pressure on any area that causes an excessive excretion of adrenaline or other hormones that might make him aggressive, that would do it, too.  (+ info)

What is the difference between an aneurysm and an embolism?


Is the difference where they happen (head versus body), between hitting a vein or artery, or how serious the damage is? Can a cerebral accident be both an aneurysm and an embolism at the same time?
----------

Yes. An aneurism is the ballooning of a blood vessel, and it can rupture due to a weak vessel wall.

An embolism is a clot floating around in the bloodstream, and is critical when it reaches either the brain or the heart. Elsewhere, it may cause a stroke/paralysis.  (+ info)

What is the recovery time when you have a brain aneurysm ?


A friend of mine, on May 26, 2006, after severe headaches and hospital visits, found out after collapsing, that she had 3 aneurysms & one had burst. She had surgery the following next day. Now it is July, and she still does not talk. She will squeeze your hand on occasion and other times she does not respond at all. She is finally off the respirator and breathing on her own. Does anyone know the recovery time for a ruptured brain aneurysm? The doctor said we have to take it day by day and see.
----------

my name is Nancy, and i am 51 years old. i have suffered from severe migraines for nearly 20 years. on April 17th, i had a grand mal seizure, and an aneurysm ruptured in my brain. i was air lifted to the finest hospital on the east coast. i had surgery immediately. the road to healing is a long one. i experienced those "in and out days" , and believe me they are more frustrating to you than to your friend. the brain goes on "vacation" whilst resting and repairing itself. it was 8 weeks before i spoke a word, and once that occurs, things start to fall inti place fairly rapidly. when you visit, talk about fun times that you two have shared, and never forget to tell her that you are anxiously awaiting her side of the conversation. it will come. good luck, and god bless.

what is the latest surgical procedure for an aneurysm of the ascending aorta?


I have been detected with an aneurysm of the ascending aorta in 2000 A.D.I am now 64 yrs old. The latest catscan(helical) shows the aneurysm has increased in size(to 60 mm).What is the safest surgical procedure?Has a laparospic procedure been developed for aortic aneurysms?
----------

There is a site that deals with medical issues called Medline. If you type this word (Medline) in Google or Yahoo and search you will probably get the website address. I did and found that in 2005 the FDA approved a treatment for your condition that in effect bypasses the weakness similar to a heart bypass. If you enter aortic surgery as a search word on the medline home page I am certain you will probably see the same article. Be certain to ask your physician if he/she is aware of this treatment, and if t has been successful. Good luck.  (+ info)

Aneurysms are usually congenital meaning a person is born with it. They are usually not discovered until later in life. Trauma can also cause aneurysm formation.
