My name is Shahrezade Miceli and I'm 55 years old. About 6 years ago during a CT scan to see a kidney stone I realized I had an aneurysm and a dissection of abdominal aortic. I have been really lucky to find out this condition. Right now my situation is under control and so far I never had surgery . I know that in many cases , aortic dissection could be a familial disease and doing genetic test is important to save lives!
