Tue, Feb 19 3:35am · Celiac Artery Aneurysm in Aortic Aneurysms

Mine is only 11 mm, which is much smaller than 1.4 cm. However, the vascular surgeon says if it gets any larger at all, I will need surgery. I asked him if he has ever performed this kind of operation, & he said "no". So I have another CT in 6 months, & if it is any larger, I'm gonna look into UT Southwestern in Dallas.They have a lot of vascular surgeons there, & maybe one of them has performed this operation. Dallas is 3 hrs away, & I've been there several times to a GI doc, & she and everyone else we came into contact with UTSW were all just amazing!

Yep, 11 mm, not cm, which is much larger. When I asked the vascular surgeon if he had ever done the operation, and he said "no",, but I can't find you someone here who probably has. Not risking that. If the CT in 6 months shows that it is larger, I have a connection at UT Southwestern in Dallas, & they have about 12 vascular surgeons. I won't trust any dr here in Wichita Falls for anything! Our doctors are pathetic.I do keep having pain under my bottom left ri, but the dr said that's not where the aneurysm is located. Don't even know if he knows what he's talking about.Sometimes I wish I lived in a larger city. Dallas is 3 hrs away & OK City is too.

I saw the vascular surgeon yesterday, & he said my aneurysm is only 11 mm in size, as it was on a previous CT in Sept. Wants to follow up with another CT in 6 months. If it gets any larger, he wants to do a surgical resection or a stent.

Has anyone ever had an aneurysm rupture or ever heard of anyone that did?

I live in North Central TX on the OK border by Wichita Falls. I am seeing the only Vascular Surgeon near by (Dr. Mohamad), but am considering going to UT Southwestern in Dallas. It's 3 hours away, but far more advanced than we are here.

Thanks for the info. I see the vascular surgeon on Thursday. I'll post an update then.

I recently had a abdominal CT to check on a hernia, but they found a celiac artery aneurysm measuring 11 mm. I have an appointment with a vascular surgeon this week, but my husband & I want me to have surgery for this, although the aneurysm is not very large.I don't even know if he has ever performed this kind of resection before. We live 3 hours from Dallas & may decide to have a surgeon there do the operation. Any advise would be helpful.
