Aortic Aneurysm Treatment in Singapore
The largest and main blood- vessel of the human body is called aorta, which is an oxygen-rich blood carrier of our heart. When it bulges or swells, due to any abnormality within, it is called aortic aneurysm in medical term. It generally happens when a portion of the vessel becomes weak. When blood flows through the weak vessel, it creates a swelling in the inner tube and spreads outwards. This position gradually increases accordingly, as per the growing blood pressure. This situation is risky because it can burst and internal bleeding may occur, to the person concerned.
Aorta- the vessel starts from the left chamber of the heart and passes through the chest, belly/abdomen and ends into the pelvis.
