Fixing an aneurysm involves removing the diseased part of the blood vessel and replacing it with an artificial one. Depending on its location, this repair can be executed by making a small incision, using X-ray imaging and the latest technology to insert “stent graft.” Aneurysms involving the first portion of the aorta most often require open surgery.

In this whiteboard session, Cleveland Clinic’s Eric E. Roselli, MD, surgeon in the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, explains minimally invasive and open treatment options.
