Thank you for your question. Depending on the size and morphology of the aneurysm, the decision to treat it can be taken. The current standard of care is an EVAR - Endo vascular Aneurysm Repair procedure. This involves placing a stent which is covered by an impermeable membrane across the aneurysm. This creates a tunnel through the aneurysm and prevents the aneurysm from filling. Specific information like seeing CT Angiogram images would help in giving you further information.
