Aneurysms can happen anywhere in the body, but usually occur in your aorta, the main artery that ships blood from your heart to the rest of your body. The stomach is the most common site, where the condition is known as an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Dr. Gustavo Oderich, the Chief-Vascular & Endovascular Surgery with UT Health & Memorial Hermann, shares more on this condition, risk factors and one patient’s journey with a very complex aneurysm and how he helped him with a custom stent procedure.
