Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Treatment in Israel

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Treatment in IsraelAreas in the lower part of the aorta can become enlarged as a result of its wall weakening due to age, injuries or atherosclerotic changes. As the damaged area grows in size, the aortic wall weakens further, and the risk of rupture increases. As the aorta is body’s the largest blood vessel, the resulting bleeding may be life-threatening. This is why if you've been diagnosed with the condition, you're strongly advised to seek immediate abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm – Symptoms:

Most people with abdominal aortic aneurysms are asymptomatic. The pathology can be diagnosed by a physician palpating a pulsating mass in the middle or lower part of the stomach; most often, however, it is first observed during an imaging study (such as CT or US scan).

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Treatment in Israel:

The treatment we offer is called endovascular stent grafting (or endovascular aneurysm repair) – this is a minimally invasive procedure during which a stent graft is inserted (through small incisions in the inguinal area under either general or spinal anesthesia) into the abdominal aneurysm to reinforce the aortic wall. No incisions in the abdominal region or of the aorta are required. The procedure normally takes around 2 hours.

Diagnostics stage:

To verify the diagnosis you will undergo the following investigations:

  • Extensive blood work-up (CBC, SMAC, lipid profile, electrolyte levels and coagulation factors)
  • Abdominal Doppler ultrasound scan
  • Vascular surgeon’s consultation

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Surgery:

The cost of the abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery is comprised of the following:

  • Routine preoperative preparation (ECG, chest X-ray and an anesthesiologist’s consultation)
  • Operative intervention and 3 days of hospitalization
  • Disposable surgical materials and stents

Normally, you will be able to go home no more than 7 days after the procedure.

Your abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment will take place at the state-of-the-art [[Assuta Medical Center]].

Please Note

The suggested treatment (by a specialist recommended by us) will take place at Assuta Medical Center, which is the best hospital in Israel. If you would like, we can instead arrange treatment for you at one of Israel’s public hospitals. In such case, the cost of the surgery (not including the logistics package) will be lower by 20 to 30 per cent. However, while we can guarantee that the surgery will be performed by one of that hospital’s top experts, the decision regarding which physician will depend on the hospitals’ schedule.
