During a preventative full body scan of a 53 year old male with no symptoms, an abdominal aortic aneurysm was found. The aneurysm had enlarged to the point of requiring immediate surgical repair to avoid rupture. Rupture of abdominal aneurysms almost always results in death.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms can form in the body over time while producing zero symptoms. Many times these aneurysms will not produce symptoms until it is too late. Patients with symptoms will complain of chest or back pain, coughing, hoarseness, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing as well as difficulty swallowing.
The aorta is the largest blood vessel in your body, which can burst when it becomes weakened. When it bursts blood leaks throughout your system. Even if the aneurysm does not rupture, it will restrict blood blow from your other organs which can also result in death or stroke.
Advanced full body imaging is the only way to discover these issues. There is no routine screening in the current health system for this type of issue. Call the Q Institute today for your advanced imaging – don’t wait!
