Ascending Aortic Aneurysm: Time to Operate? (Video)

There’s no simple answer to the question: When can we operate on an aortic aneurysm? Every person is different. But the simplest way to think about it is, we operate when the risk of surgery is less than the risk of having a rupture or dissection from the aneurysm. In this whiteboard session, Cleveland Clinic’s Eric E. Roselli, MD, surgeon in the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, discusses how they make the decision when to operate.
