Aneurysm is an endovascular disease, the manifests as ballooning or bulging of specific regions of arteries due to weakening of the arterial wall as a consequence of trauma, atherosclerosis, hereditary conditions and abnormal blood flow.
Aneurysms are typically formed in the Brain arteries, heart chambers, Aorta and even in coronary arteries; these are diagnosed, evaluated and monitored safely with the help of Ultrasound, Magnetic resonance imaging – MRI and Angiography imaging modalities.
Brain – Cerebral aneurysm, Anterior communicating (Acom) artery aneurysm & Basilar artery aneurysm
Left Ventricle & Right Atrium- Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA), Atrial septal aneurysms (ASA)
Aorta – Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), Thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) and Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA).
Once diagnosed, either the aneurysms are repaired immediately if the aneurysm is diagnostically large and located in upper chest as in the case of ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm; or monitored carefully over time if present below the lower chest or abdomen to see any pathological increase in size. If the size measured isn’t life threatening, then these aneurysms are left untreated to avoid complex surgical procedures.
If left untreated this ballooned area of the artery can rupture due to pressure and can lead to life threatening bleeding.
For repairing the aneurysms formed in various locations of the arteries an open vascular repair surgeries or minimally invasive endovascular procedures are employed by our endovascular specialists.

Need Help With Anything?
Our Patient Care Team would guide you.
Aortic Aneurysm Repair
Pseudoaneurysm or false aneurysm may form anywhere in the large arteries or aorta as a consequent complication of cardiac catheterisation. It is managed either through ultrasound mediated compression, pharmacological intervention; or ligated surgically or through endovascular stenting procedure.
Cerebral Artery Aneurysm Repair
The choice of treatment is at the best discretion of our brain aneurysm repair surgeons –neurosurgeons & interventional neurologists based on the observation and the aneurysm’s size, location and neck geometry.
Extracranial, Carotid Artery Aneurysm Repair
Minimally invasive or open heart surgery – the carotid aneurysm is repaired either endovascular stent grafting procedure through percutaneous intervention or an invasive bypass surgery using autologous venous graft or a prosthetic vessel.
Best of our endovascular surgeons, neurosurgeons, interventional cardiologists & neurologists are extensively experienced and highly trained in performing challenging and complex endovascular procedures for treating aneurysms of different origins in collaboration with radiologists and anaesthetists.
