Surgery or stent: Some aortic aneurysms occur in the chest. More often, aneurysms occur in the belly. Depending on the anatomy, some of the aneurysms can be surgically repaired and others can be repaired with a stent graft. Surgical repair involves excision and replacement of the aneurysmal segment. A stent graft is a percutaneous procedure.
