Personal Stories: Dan Swim

I had an aortic dissection at 32 years of age. It was repaired after I rushed myself to emergency in Hamilton, Ont. Canada.

Ten years later, after some routine tests, it was discovered that i had a pseudo aneurysm above the previous surgery.

My whole aortic arch was replaced as well as the Bentall aortic valve replacement were performed on Jan. 17 2006.

So far , so good. Back to work with no complications, knock on wood. Would like to talk to other survivors.
