After being diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm, Cliff Godwin discusses his family's history of heart problems and the severity of his situation. The program follows Cliff and his wife Betty as doctors perform tests to evaluate Cliff's treatment options and determine the best course of action. When denied for less invasive procedures, Cliff decides he must have open surgery to repair the potentially fatal condition. In the operating room, surgeons show how a stent is used to strengthen the wall of an artery as well as share the risks and complications that can accompany the procedure. *NOTE: This video contains actual surgical procedures. Please review before showing.
