My husband is under Doctor's care for a Aortic Valve Aneurysm which is currently at 5.4 cm. My question is: Is it safe for him to fly from Phoenix, AZ to Grand Rapids, MI? Will the pressure in the plane affect the aneurysm any? Thanks. sad

Good Afternoon,
I am sorry to read of your husband's problems.  May I suggest that you call his cardiologist and ask this question.  We are truly not qualified to answer this question and we would not want to lead you astray at the risk of giving you wrong information.
I hope you are able to make the flight.
