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.What is aneurysm and what causes it?
An aneurysm is an abnormal widening or ballooning of a part of an artery due to weakness in the wall of the blood vessel. It is not clear exactly what causes aneurysms. Some aneurysms are present at birth (congenital). Defects in some parts of the artery wall may be a cause.How long can you live with an aneurysm?
And as older patients have a shorter remaining life span than do younger patients, they have a shorter period of being at risk for aneurysm rupture. Almost half of patients die within 30 days of aneurysm rupture, and about half of the survivors have irreversible brain damage.Will an aneurysm ever heal itself?
The goal of treating an aortic aneurysm is to prevent dissection or rupture, the likelihood of which increases with the size of the aneurysm. Once an aneurysm develops along the aorta, it will not disappear or reduce in size on its own. Some small aneurysms will remain stable in size for many years, while others increase in size over time.
