Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
Cutting to the chase. My original Type A emergency dissection repair is nearly worn out. Aneurysm forming around the Dacron graft onto the original Aorta. Complete aortic arch replacement now scheduled for late September early October. called 'Elephant Trunk' Procedure. It's the Godzilla of all heart operations. Thankful and VERY grateful that I can have this performed as usually restricted to under 60s.
My team at Guys St Thomas in London - best in world for heart so confident there..And recover is well.. a long time. So finally - selling business (hopefully with titanic mess UK is in..) and retiring! That way might be able to bring this site back to its glory days as will certainly have the time. .and now totally the credentials!
