AAA Patients Can Now Be Treated with the Latest Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) Technology Using Alto® Abdominal Stent Graft System
Deborah Heart and Lung Center is now treating Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) patients with the ALTO® Abdominal Stent Graft System.
Featuring a unique sealing technology, ALTO is the latest generation of low-profile polymer-based therapies for AAA treatment, offered exclusively by the Endologix Corporation.
The aorta is the body’s main artery, carrying blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an enlarged and weakened section, or “ballooning” of the aorta below the renal arteries that may require treatment to prevent it from bursting and causing serious internal bleeding. Patients diagnosed with an AAA can be treated with open surgical repair or via a less invasive Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). Fortunately, many patients benefit from minimally invasive (endovascular) repair of the aorta using special stents that create a new pathway for blood flow away from the aneurysm.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
