In brief: Speed matters
5-5.5 cm is the usual size that repair is recommended.
But a growing aneurysm may need earlier repair -- esp if it increases in size by more than 1 cm in less than a year.

In brief: Aneurysm size
Beyond 4cm, the aneurysm is observed very closely.
It needs be operated before it burst.
