An aortic aneurysm is an abnormal bulge that occurs in the wall of the major blood vessel (aorta) that carries blood from your heart to your body. Aortic aneurysms can occur anywhere in your aorta and may be tube-shaped (fusiform) or round (saccular). This poster is about the pathophysiology of how these abnormal bulges occur. It also covers the significance of the pathophysiology along with the clinical picture of what to expect if an individual experiences these mechanisms behind the pathophysiology.
