It is possible : it is possible but may not be necessary. Many patients with this condition can be managed with good medical therapy.

Many aneurysms in this age group can be managed medically. If surgery is necessary, stents can now treat the aneurysm and traditional surgery may be not be needed. Only a few major centers offer aortic stenting, so research this carefully
