a bulge in the wall of the aorta that is usually due to arteriosclerosis or atherosclerosis
a bulge in your body's largest artery (aorta)
a bulge in your bodys largest artery
a bulging out (dilation) of the walls of the main blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart (the aorta)
a bulging out in a
a bulging out of the normal caliber of the aorta, the main artery coming from the heart and going down along the spine just behind the back of the abdominal wall
a dilatation, a ballooning or swelling of a part of the aorta, the main blood vessel which runs from the heart in the centre of the body
a dilatation of the aorta caused by a weakness in the vessel wall
a dilation (ballooning) of part of the aorta
a dilation, bulging or ballooning of a weakened part of the aortic artery wall
a dilation or bulging of the aorta, the heart's main artery that supplies oxygenated blood to the body's arteries
a general term for any localized dilatation or aneurysm An aneurysm (or aneurism) (from Gr
a localized dilation or bulge of the aorta, the largest artery in the body
an abnormal bulge in the wall of the aorta,
an abnormal bulging of part of the aorta that may cause blood to leak through the aortic valve and flow the wrong direction
an abnormal bulging of the large artery bringing blood to the body
a stretched and bulging section in the wall of
a swelling of the main artery in the abdomen that is called the aorta
a weak area in the aorta, the main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to
a weak, bulging area in the wall of the aorta
a weakening in the wall of the aorta, which can be fatal if not repaired
a weakening of the wall of the aorta and could be fatal if it goes undetected and ruptures
a weak spot in the major artery running to the heart
a weak spot in the wall of the aorta allowing the vessel to expand which increases in diameter
a weak spot in the wall of the aorta, the primary artery that carries blood from the heart to the head and extremities
a widening of the major artery leading from the heart that may rupture, causing hemorrhage, or may split into layers, jeopardizing blood flow to internal organs
a localized, abnormal and persistent dilation of a section of the aorta. This usually results from a weakness in the vessel wall. If severe enough, rupture of the aorta with severe hemorrhage is a potential hazard.
A bulge in the wall of the aorta caused by deposits of cholesterol (atherosclerosis) associated with high blood pressure. Atherosclerotic aneurysms are located commonly in the belly (abdominal aorta) section. In many cases the first sign is life-threatening bleeding that is caused by the breaking open of the lesion.

a swelling in the aorta, the main artery leading from the left side of the heart.
An outpouching (a local widening) of the largest artery in the body, the aorta, involving that vessel in its course above the diaphragm (thoracic aortic aneurysm) or, more commonly, below the diaphragm ( abdominal aortic aneurysm ). The diagnosis of an aortic aneurysm can be straight forward or difficult. Around 1900 the eminent physician William Osler said: "There is no disease more conducive to clinical humility than aneurysm of the aorta." At the area of the aneurysm, there is typically a bulge and the wall is weakened and may rupture. Because of the volume of blood flowing under relatively high pressure through the aorta, a ruptured aneurysm of the aorta is a catastrophe. See the entire definition of Aortic aneurysm
An abnormal dilation of the main artery leaving the heart, resulting from disease of the vessel wall
Localised ballooning of the aorta, potentially causing pressure on adjacent structures and liability to rupture.
An aortic aneurysm is a general term for any swelling (dilatation or aneurysm) of the aorta, usually representing an underlying weakness in the wall of the aorta at that location. While the stretched vessel may occasionally cause discomfort, a greater concern is the risk of rupture which causes severe pain, massive internal hemorrhage and, without prompt treatment, results in a quick death. Aneurysms often are a source of blood clots (emboli) stemming from the most common etiology of atherosclerosis.
