Thursday, March 6, Aneurysms: Pay attention before it's too late
6:30 p.m. DCMH Conference Room D
Come and listen to Dr. Charles Kiell, M.D. speak about abdominal aortic aneurysms. Abdominal aortic aneurysms, also known as AAA, are uncommon but usually deadly. They develop slowly and usually have no symptoms, but when the weakened walls of the artery collapse, there is little recourse. That is why knowing your risk for AAA is so important. In some cases, the condition is genetic, but if you smoke, have high blood pressure or cholesterol you may be at risk as well. Dr. Kiell will discuss risks and symptoms of AAA and how Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center vascular surgeons are monitoring patients at risk and are using new materials to repair aneurysms before they rupture.
