Aortic aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm involves the aorta. The aorta is one of the largest arteries through which blood passes from the heart to the rest of the body. The aorta bulges at the position of the aneurysm like a weak spot on an old damaged tire. Aortic aneurysms can build up anywhere along the length of the aorta. The majority, though, are to be found along the abdominal aorta. Most abdominal aneurysms are located under the level of the renal arteries.
