Failure of medical management

Medical management should be considered to have failed if there is evidence of developing distal ischemia, organ failure, failure to maintain an adequate circulation, or aneurysm formation.

Stroke is not an absolute contraindication to operation; a small proportion of patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia will improve significantly postoperatively.
