Is a 2.2 CM common iliac artery saccular aneurysm considered very serious?

Very Serious: Generally speaking common iliac artery aneurysm are recommended for repair at around 3-3.5 cm, but these are often found in association with other types of aneurysms, such as aortic aneurysms or lower extremity arterial aneurysms.

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later? I'm 44 and concerned

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later? I'm 44 and concerned

Major concern would be development of any other aneurysms in other parts of your body, such as brain or any genetic defect. It seems unlikely that this celiac artery aneurysm was caused by atherosclerosis. ...Read more
