Open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is more challenging and a high risk procedure….

Touching upon the life-saving importance of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms surgery, Professor Doctor Ilhan Sanisoğlu delivered information on the treatment procedure. “Open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is a procedure that carried out to replace the diseased aortic segment and prevent the aneurysm rupture. Although it can be life-saving for patients under risk of fatal aneurysm rupture, these operations remain challenging and are associated with substantial risk of perioperative mortality and morbidity. Some patients can’t be woken up after surgery, some of them might develop major complications such as stroke and renal failure caused by ischemic insult involving the spinal cord, kidneys, and other abdominal viscera. However, such complications can be reduced by different methods used during the surgery by experienced physicians. Knowledge of the state-of-the-art diagnostic, anesthesiologic, surgical aspects are certainly of great value to the physicians involved in the treatment of these patients at any level. In the current era, this is therefore a “hot topic” and these surgeries can be performed only in rare major centers around the world. Thanks to the latest technology devices and treatment techniques and the competency of our highly qualified physicians, we perform open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm successfully at the Near East University Hospital” said he.
