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.

What does artherosclerotic calcifacations at the bifurcation and into the right common iliac artery? Is it something to worry about?

PAD/PVD; yes: Atherosclerotic calcification refers to arteries plugged w/calcified cholesterol plaques. Because this occurred in arteries to legs, it means you have peripheral artery/vascular disease. This also means you probably have some blockage in your heart (coronary arteries), too. Possibly even your carotids (in your neck). So yes need to be concerned about this to lower risk for heart attack, stroke etc. ...Read more

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

Isolated celiac: artery aneurysm is a rare condition. You should be happy that embolization was successful. I don't think you will suffer any remote complications from the procedure itself. 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

I have a small brain aneurysm in the anterior communicating artery, i'm scared of coiling, or anything more invasive, i'm hoping for some opinions ?

Be informed: Whether or not to treat the aneurysm depends on several factors including the size of the aneurysm and whether or not you have other health problems. The two best options for the aneurysm are coiling or open surgery. The aneurysm may be more amenable to one or the other depending on size and geometry. In experienced hands, both procedures are pretty safe, although not completely risk free. ...Read more
