What is aortic aneurysm?

Aortic aneurysms is a balloon-like enlargement in the major vessel that supplies blood to the body (aorta). They might rupture and bleed, which can be life-threatening. Aneurysms can develop anywhere along the aorta, but are most commonly in the lower portion of the aorta. Common causes include high blood pressure, fat build-up in the artery, infections, trauma or blood vessel diseases.
