Summit Radiology is working in conjunction with local cardiovascular surgeons to treat selected patients with AAA utilizing stent-graft technology. A stent-graft is positioned across the aneurysm, with its ends seated into the normal diameter aorta above and below the aneurysm. This effectively isolates the aneurysm sac from the normal circulation and provides a new normal channel to provide blood flow to the lower abdomen, pelvis and legs. The stent-graft is delivered via specialized catheters, which are introduced through small surgical incisions in the groin.

 

If you have any questions regarding any of these therapies, please do not hesitate to contact us. Consultation can be arranged through our Interventional Radiology Clinic by calling (260) 435-7951 during regular business hours.
