Aneurysm

An aneurysm is an abnormal widening or ballooning of a part of an artery due to weakness in the wall of the blood vessel. It is not clear exactly what causes aneurysms. Some aneurysms are present at birth (congenital). Defects in some parts of the artery wall may be a cause. High blood pressure is thought to play a role in abdominal aortic aneurysms. Atherosclerotic disease (cholesterol buildup in arteries) may also lead to the formation of some aneurysms. Aneurysms can form in any section of the aorta, but they are most common in the belly area. They can also happen in the upper body. Thoracic aortic aneurysms are also known as ascending or descending aortic aneurysms.

An aneurysm is an abnormal bulge in the wall of an artery, this aneurysm commonly occurs in aorta so called Aortic aneurysm. A ventricular aneurysm is a defect in the left (or right) ventricle of the heart, usually produced by trans mural infarction and after several days or weeks it can leads to acute myocardial infarction. Coronary artery aneurysm is abnormal dilatations of part of the coronary artery acquired causes include atherosclerosis, Kawasaki disease and coronary catheterization. A Thoracic aortic aneurysm is an enlargement of the aorta in the part of the body called the thoracic cavity. If it is not surgically repaired leads to aortic dissection. If these aneurysms grow beyond a certain point, resulting in severe blood loss. Once ruptured, death is very common.  Early recognition and treatment can prevent death from AAA and TAA.
