Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Aortic Aneurysm Repair

An aneurysm is an abnormal bulge in the wall of an artery. Normally , the walls of arteries are thick and muscular, allowing them to withstand a large amount of pressure. Occasionally, however a weak area develops in the wall of an artery. This allows the pressure within the artery to push outwards creating a bulge or ballooned area called an aneurysm. Aneurysms can form in any blood vessel, but they occur most commonly in the aorta. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. It carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Aortic aneurysms can occur in two main places:

Abdominal aortic aneurysms occur in the part of the aorta that passes through the middle to low abdomen. 2.Thoracic aortic aneurysms occur on the aorta as it passes through the chest cavity. These are less common than abdominal aneurysms.
