Inova Heart and Vascular Institute is a leader in the repair of aortic aneurysms using minimally invasive or endovascular (within the blood vessels) techniques. The procedure requires only small incisions in the groin along with the use of X-ray guidance and specially designed instruments to repair the aneurysm.

Most often, an aortic aneurysm is initially diagnosed and managed by a cardiologist. Depending on the course of treatment, other specialists who may be involved in a patient’s care could include interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and vascular surgeons.
