Aortic Aneurysms: What you need to Know

Aortic aneurysms can occur in different parts of the aorta, including the ascending aorta, the aortic arch, and the descending aorta. It can be caused by a number of factors, including high blood pressure, smoking, atherosclerosis (a build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries), connective tissue disorders (such as Marfan syndrome), and family history. They are diagnosed using imaging tests such as CT scans, MRI scans, or ultrasound. Treatment for aortic aneurysms depends on their size, location, and other factors. Small aneurysms may be monitored with regular imaging tests, while larger aneurysms may require surgery or other interventions.Some people may be at higher risk of developing aortic aneurysms, including those with a family history of the condition, smokers, and people with high blood pressure or cholesterol.
