Aortic Aeurysm

An aortic aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge in the aorta, the large artery that carries blood from the heart through the chest and torso.

Aortic aneurysms work in two ways. The force of blood pumping can split the layers of the artery wall, allowing blood to leak in between them. This process is called a dissection. The aneurysm can burst completely, causing bleeding inside the body. This is called a rupture.
