Aortic rupture is a surgical emergency, and has a high mortality even with prompt treatment. These issues attain importance and should abbdominal considered when making a choice between different treatment options.

The risk of aneurysm enlargement may be diminished with attention to the patient’s blood pressure, smoking and cholesterol levels. Abdominal aortic aneurysms AAAs are more common than their thoracic counterpart.

Retrieved 2 May There have been proposals to introduce ultrasound scans as a screening tool for those most at risk: The prevalence of AAAs increases with age, with an average age of 65—70 at the time of diagnosis.

While definite genetic abnormalities were identified in true genetic syndromes Marfan, Elher-Danlos and others associated with aortic aneurysms, both thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms demonstrate a strong genetic component in their aetiology.

It involves placement of an endo-vascular stent through small incisions at the abdmoinal of each leg into the aorta. An aortic aneurysm can rupture from wall weakness.
