First detected via a murmur in 2007. Now severe, although sxs are minimal. Early ascending aortic aneurysm (4.2 cm). I am an active Interventional Radiologist at UPMC Hamot in Erie, PA. I look forward to emerging from the aortic surgery gauntlet ready to pick up where I left off. I have really enjoyed the journal entries I have read. This is a great group and I look forward to joining and contributing. Hello to all!
