I have been diagnosed with a 7.3cms Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA). I am going into the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) in the near future for CT scans and to discuss my options. I beleive they want to operate within three weeks.
What I know so far is that a non-invasive technique is out of the question because the neck of the ameurysm is too narrow to allow the collapsed stent to pass through. So it's open heart surgery.
The suggested consultant is Mr. Cha Rajakaruna. My minimal research so far does not put his medical outcome as high as some other surgeons but then it's hard to judge. Personal recommendation may be a better guide.
Has anyone had any experience of this surgeon?
Thanks for your time.
