Endovascular Aortic Graft Implantation
A female patient aged 87 with high blood pressure
and cerebrovascular failure, applied to our hospital because of
severe chest pain continuing for 10 days. On the medicated chest and
abdominal tomography report, a severe aneurysm starting on the aortic
curve to straight down was detected. The patient is suggested to have
an operation as soon as possible. We make risk measurements and
needed preoperative examinations before these kinds of surgeries. As
this person is a high-risk patient, we prefer to perform Endovascular
Aortic Stent-Graft Implantation rather than an open-heart surgery.
The patient was monitored during the operation which was made with
the closed-surgery method. She was hospitalized a day before the
operation and stayed at the hospital for 2 days after the surgery,
she was discharged on the 3rd day of the postoperative
period. Her complaints were eased and there were no complications on
the 1st-month tomography examination report.
Aortic Graft Implantations are known as a new era and path-breaking
interventions in Cardiovascular Surgery.
