My 10 y.o daughter has kawasaki disease and multiple giant aneurysms from her neck down, diagnosed at six weeks old. Is decompression an option at all?

This has been done in cases where the aneurysm was pressing on adjacent structures causing complications. The procedure entails some risk and likely would not be feasible for multiple asymptomatic giant aneurysm. ...Read more
