An aneurysm refers to an abnormal bulging or ballooning of a blood vessel, resulting from a weakened artery wall. While aneurysms can occur in various parts of the body, such as the brain, chest, abdomen, or extremities, they pose significant health risks due to the potential for rupture and severe internal bleeding. At Complex Health Solutions, we specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of abdominal and lower extremity aneurysms, providing comprehensive care to our patients.

What is an Aneurysm?

An aneurysm occurs when the walls of a blood vessel weaken, causing a localized dilation or bulge. The exact cause of aneurysms can vary and may involve factors such as genetic predisposition, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (plaque buildup), trauma, infection, or certain medical conditions. Aneurysms are often asymptomatic and may be discovered incidentally during routine medical examinations or diagnostic imaging. However, depending on their location, size, and risk of rupture, aneurysms require careful monitoring and appropriate treatment.


In many cases, aneurysms do not cause noticeable symptoms until they become large or rupture. However, depending on the location and size of the aneurysm, individuals may experience the following signs and symptoms:

  • Sudden, severe pain: Ruptured aneurysms can cause intense pain that may be described as a ripping or tearing sensation. The pain is often localized to the area of the aneurysm but can radiate to the surrounding regions.
  • Pulsating mass: A large aneurysm may be palpable as a pulsating mass near the surface of the body, such as in the abdomen or back of knee.
  • Other symptoms: Depending on the specific type and location of the aneurysm, individuals may experience additional symptoms, such weakness or numbness in the limbs, or abdominal pain.

It is essential to understand that not all aneurysms cause symptoms, and many are detected incidentally through routine screenings or tests for other conditions.

Treatment Options: At Complex Health Solutions, our dedicated team of vascular specialists offers a wide range of treatment options for aneurysms, tailored to each patient’s specific needs. The choice of treatment depends on factors such as the size, location, and overall health of the patient, as well as the risk of rupture. Common treatment options for aneurysms include:

  • Watchful waiting: For smaller aneurysms that have not reached a size that requires immediate intervention, regular monitoring through diagnostic imaging may be recommended. This approach aims to track the aneurysm’s growth rate and determine if treatment becomes necessary in the future.
  • Endovascular repair: This minimally invasive procedure involves placing a stent graft or coils within the aneurysm to reinforce the weakened blood vessel wall, redirect blood flow, and prevent rupture. Endovascular repair is commonly used for aneurysms in the aorta, groin, or other locations.
  • Open surgical repair: In some cases, traditional open surgery may be necessary to repair the aneurysm. This procedure involves replacing or reinforcing the weakened section of the blood vessel using surgical techniques and synthetic grafts.

Our experienced vascular specialists will evaluate each patient’s condition thoroughly and discuss the most appropriate treatment options based on their individual circumstances, considering factors such as aneurysm size, location, and overall health.
