1 doctor agrees
In brief: See below
Surgery can very effectively repair a narrowing of the aorta, usually by removing the narrow section and reconnecting the two good ends of the aorta.
In some, drs. Perform a procedure known as balloon dilation (also called balloon angioplasty). A cardiologist may also implant a device called a stent, which is a tube made of metal meshwork, to keep the area open after the procedure.
