Celiac Occlusion with 2 Aneurysms in Pancreaticodudenal network

Posted by NotABigFanOfAneurysms @quinnerton, Jan 4 2:52am

Hi all,

While having a recent CTScan for something unrelated, I was informed of an “incedental finding” of two aneurysms and an occlusion of my celiac artery.

I am not really sure where to start with all of this. I do have an appointment to review this CTScan with a local vascular surgeon. In the meantime, I am hoping to lean on anyone here that may have similar issues/experiences, and ask if anyone might have any insight or advice that they can share?

My specifics from my CTScan are as follows:

-There is occlusion of the celiac trunk. -There is hypertrophy of the gastroduodenal artery with a focus of fusiform aneurysmal dilatation measuring approximately 14 x 8 x 10 mm.
-An extensive hypertrophied collateral network through the pancreaticoduodenal arcade cc and approximately 25 x 14 x 11 mm aneurysm, near the origin of the SMA.

1. Chronic occlusion of the celiac trunk at its branching from the aorta with extensive pancreaticoduodenal collaterals.
2. 14 and 25 mm aneurysms within the pancreaticoduodenal network.
3. Other incidental and chronic findings as described above.

At this point, I am most interested in finding out who the top surgeon(s) for these issues are. If anyone has names they could share, I’d be grateful for it!

Thank you for any thoughts/advice any of you might be able to share!!
