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

I was told I have 100% blockage in my celiac artery. Should I worry?

I was told I have 100% blockage in my celiac artery. Should I worry?

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

Since I'm allergic to so many medications, looking for safe natural way to open celiac artery. Calcium deposits. Condition found in cat scan when l1F?

Celiac artery Ca2+: Before you try anything you should talk with your doc about what really needs to be done. If your artery needed opening I am sure they would have recommended something specific. If this is part of a more generalized process you may need a medication for that. Multiple "allergies" can be a problem. ...Read more

Can stenosis return after celiac artery compression surgery? Pain nausea steatorrea back. Sma plaque also. Could ischemia be from SMA alone?

Can stenosis return after celiac artery compression surgery? Pain nausea steatorrea back. Sma  plaque also.  Could  ischemia be from SMA alone?

Complicated Question: Celiac artery compression syndrome (cacs) is the condition usually associated with the surgery you've described. Stenosis does not generally return after surgery for cacs. Chronic mesenteric ischemia can be from sma stenosis in isolation, however, this would not include steatorrhea. With back pain, nausea, and steatorrhea i would consider pancreatitis or some other issue with the pancreas. ...Read more
