A mechanically-guided trephination is standard although newer non-mechanical laser techniques are more accurate and are preferred by some surgeons when available (Gaster et al., 2012).

Vena cava filters are small mechanical devices that are positioned in the vena cava with the sole purpose of preventing large blood clots from travelling from the legs to the pulmonary arteries. Clots reaching the arteries of the lungs may cause pulmonary embolism, which is a life-threatening condition. Aneurysms of the aorta as well as dissections may be treated with the use of endoluminal stent grafts. This requires the placement of a reinforcing tube within the affected parts of the
It spreads to the uterus, fallopian tubes which then gets to the ovaries. In the pelvis, it affects your bladder and some other areas of the abdominal walls. The spleen, gallbladder, stomach, nasal mucosa, spinal canal, lungs, breast, diaphragm, pleura, and pericardium are sites that are more distant away from the main sites. Regardless of how far the site may be it can still be affected by the lesions or “chocolate” cyst. In the stages of endometriosis you can experience different types of effects and stages.
Surgical Repair If the thoracic aortic aneurysm become larger or you are already causing symptoms, you will need a quick treatment to prevent a rupture from occurring. The weakened section of the vessel can be replaced with a stent graft of artificial material and surgically removed.

This is similar to the Radical Prostatectomy except that the incision in the skin is made between the anus and scrotum. One other form of surgery is Cryosurgery. Cryosurgery is used to help cure early stage cancer, by freezing it. With this, several needles are placed through the skin between the anus and scrotum.
Your surgeon may also provide you with a choice regarding anesthesia. The majority of patients prefer anesthesia that allows them to sleep through the procedure.
