What is a treatment for an aneurysm near the heart?

Depending on the nature of the aneurysm, the goals for treatment of aortic aneurysms may include keeping the aneurysm from growing larger or preventing and fixing damage to nearby tissues, notes the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Another goal may be to minimize the chances of or treat a rupture. Common medications prescribed to patients with aortic aneurysms include calcium channel blockers and beta blockers.
