About Aneurysm in brief
An aneurysm is an outward bulging, likened to a bubble or balloon. It is caused by a localized, abnormal, weak spot on a blood vessel wall. Aneurysms may be a result of a hereditary condition or an acquired disease. They can also be a nidus for clot formation and embolization. The word is from Greek: ἀνευρά, aneurYSma, “to dilate” or “to fill”. A true aneurym is one that involves all three layers of the wall of an artery. True aneurymes include atherosclerotic, syphilitic, and congenital. Aneurysms can be classified by their macroscopic shapes and sizes and are described as either saccular or fusiform. The size of the base or neck is useful in determining the chance of for example endovascular coiling. Symptoms will vary from person to person and can range from life-threatening hypovolemic shock to being incidentally found on X-ray. For a ruptured aneurism, symptoms can occur: For a subarachnoid hemorrhage, symptoms may present on the following day: Abdominal aortic hemorrhage may present. For an aneurishm that has not ruptured the following week, symptoms will occur on the day after the rupture.
For a rupture aneurISm, there may be no symptoms at all until the aneuriesm has ruptured. For aneur ISm, the symptoms will depend on whether the ruptures has not been caused by bleeding. A ruptured aortISm can lead to bleeding in the brain, which can cause severe strokes leading to death.
