Recently Researched Medical Condition: Aortic Aneurysm


Wow, so this research I've been doing on the cardiovascular system has led me all over the place. It's hard to read all of this stuff, see all the pictures and not be scared all the time about what may be going on inside my own body! I mean, there are so many things that can potentially happen that one could just go nuts!

I was reading some lengthy material on the aorta, and I came across the condition known as the aortic aneurysm which affects the aorta and is the result of a rupture, which is deadly serious.

The main concern is that the symptoms vary widely, and there are often times not any symptoms at all until the aorta is ready to burst, which 80% of the time ends in death, which is very unfortunate because if caught early, the causes of the disease can be treated and reversed with minimal invasive surgery.

That's all for today, just wanted to share!
