Celiac Artery Aneurysm: Anyone else with same illness?

Posted by Jen @jurney01, Jul 23, 2016

Hello! I was recently diagnosis with a celiac artery aneurysm in June 2016. I underwent a embolization w/ coils procedure since the aneurysm had grown while in the hospital. I was trying to reach out to someone who suffered the same illness but have not been lucky. I would like to locate someone with my same illness. I would appreciate any help. Thank you

I never heard of using xarelto as a blood thinner and I’ve been on Coumadin for 10 years. Warfarin is the same thing pretty much and all I’ve been using is Coumadin.
Every Wednesday morning the lab comes to my house to draw blood and the results goes to my cardiologist and he determines my dose as it is up and down weekly.

I have researched zarelto and it is a blood thinner. I thought it was either Coumadin or warfarin (same thing).

Dear All
Thank you for sharing the information as above.
I was diagnosed with a celiac artery Aneurism in 2020 and the size was 1.cm . Last year due to my abdominal pain after CT scans the result show an increase of the size to 1.1cm .
My Dr advise to observe if the aneurysm grows further before considering surgical intervention. Surgery
I will appreciate if anyone could advise me on the above issue .
Thx
Wendy

Would love any additional updates from anyone my husband also just had this and they have done nothing, and basic just a wait and see. That does not really sit well with me, feel like we should be more proactive?

Hello-please see my post at the celiac artery dissection thread as celiac aneurysm can occur with this issue. Hope this helps. Also, there are two types of celiac aneurysms-true and false which determines how they are treated. My personal advice is to always seek a second opinion for serious medical issues like this with a specialist (like a vascular surgeon) at a tertiary care center where these rarer problems are treated more frequently. Hard to balance anxiety of the risks and concerns of monitoring vs the risks of treatment.

My celac artery dissected recently. The doctors think it could fix itself. I have a new scan in 6 months to see how I am doing. It is a lot to digest, but I've worked as a medical professional for over 30 years. It has helped my own understanding of everything.

Hang in there. The fact that you're under a doctor's care and monitoring it means you're better off than 99% of the people out there who do not know that they have this condition. Peace.
