What could you tell me about celiac artery aneurysms and repairs?

They are uncommon.: The celiac axis (or artery) is one of the shortest named arteries. It branches very quickly into the hepatic and splenic arteries. Because it is so short, it is uncommon for it to develop an aneurysm. They can occur and when their size is appropriate, will require open surgical repair, with an interposition bypass to replace the aneurysmal artery. It is a big operation_ should be expertly done. ...Read more

What is the best treatment approach to aneurysm of celiac artery (w/dissection), measuring 1.5 x 2.7 centimeters?

Surgery or others: This is really complex, options include open repair , bypass surgery with ligation or just simple ligation. Other less invasive options include endovascular stenting or coil embolization. You must consult with your vascular surgeon to discuss these option which depends on the location of the aneurysm, amount of collaterals , presence of other aneurysms and patient medical condition. ...Read more

Artery Disease, aka: atherosclerosis, which by autopsy data going back ~8 decades in US, is present in 50% of population by age 7, yet within walls of arteries, arteries enlarge & openings remain same; thus no symptoms for decades until plaque ruptures induce clots which suddenly narrow opening or the enlargement becomes excessive resulting in aneurysms. Optimize NMR lipoprofile, HbA1c 5.0% & BP; study my answers. ...Read more

Not necessarily. : Chronic mesenteric ischemia is a condition where the "guts" do not have enough circulation in order to digest food properly. This causes pain after eating and can lead to weight loss. It can be a very serious condition that can require a procedure or surgery. However, the body is amazingly redundant. Most people have to experience complete or near complete blockage in two of the three main arteries to experience these symptoms. ...Read more

What kind of doctor should I see for a abnormal celiac artery?

It depends: The celiac artery is a large artery in the abdomen. If the abnormality is part of a disease of many arteries, such as polyarteritis nodosa (or other vasculitis), you need to see a rheumatologist. If the abnormailty is limited to that artery, see a vascular surgeon. ...Read more
