What is Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Aorta is the blood vessels which connects from chest to abdomen. It is the longest and the main blood vessel in our body.
The main function of Aorta is it carries blood from the heart and supplies to the rest of the body. The part of the aorta
in your abdomen is called the abdominal aorta. It supplies blood to your stomach, pelvis and legs.

The weakest part of the blood vessel is called aneurysm. When the blood vessels are weak they will swell and look like a balloon.
If an aneurysm forms on your abdominal aorta and grows too large, your aorta may tear or burst.


symptoms of an AAA

* Sudden pain in your abdomen, groin, back, legs or buttocks
* Nausea and vomiting
* Abnormal stiffness in your abdominal muscles
* Swelling or bulging in one area of your abdomen
* Clammy skin

Treatment for AAA

When aneurysm is large you need to take a surgery. If aneurysm is small, your doctor may just monitor it using ultrasound tests.It is always important to prevent aneurysm from bursting or tearing.
