Is there any treatment you do for a mild fusiform of  distal aorta without aneurysm ???  Do you recommend echo???  Surgery???  Or even worry since don’t have aneurysm or how big of risk are you at it turning into a aneurysm???   Thank you
A fusiform is a type of aneurysm, only the shape is spindle-like. Since it's an aneurysm, there's a risk of rupture, and rupture could be a big problem.  It is usually a complication of atherosclerosis. Given the risk of rupture and highly possible atherosclerosis, I think it's a good idea to follow up with a cardiologist.
