Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm


A thoracic aortic aneurysm is a medical condition characterized by the abnormal bulging or dilation of the thoracic aorta, the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. This weakening of the aortic wall can lead to life-threatening complications, such as rupture or dissection, if not detected and treated in a timely manner.
