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

They are uncommon.

Artery
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

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

Surgery or others

Aneurysm
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

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

It depends

Vasculitis
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.

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.

Dr. Timothy Wu answered:

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

Complicated Question

Nausea_
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.

Dr. Andrew L. Doe answered:

I had celiac artery compression syndrome surgery after the surgery a few weeks later had ct done still showed high grade stenosis of 80 percent?

Specific Study?

Artery
Was the study done in inspiration and expiration? Are your symptoms better? Poor blood flow to the GI system is incredibly painful and difficult to live with. If you feel better after surgery, it may just be some inflammation and/or an imaging artifact. If the pain persists, you need further testing with a dye study to look at the artery. Consult an interventional radiologist and your surgeon

Celiac artery bypass with saphenous vein, just had this done at age 37. Take 325 aspirin a day. How long will this stay open and can I get pregnant?

Need more info

Aspirin
You are quite young to have had celiac artery bypass. Stay on ASA. Best advice is to consult with the surgeon who performed your bypass.
