According to Healthline.com aneurysm occurs when an artery’s wall weakens and causes an abnormally large bulge. This bulge can rapture and cause internal bleeding. Although an aneurysm can occur in any part of your body, they are most common in the brain, aorta, legs and spleen.
The exact cause of an aneurysm is unclear, certain factors contribute to the condition. Atherosclerotic disease can also lead to an aneurysm. People with atherosclerotic disease have a form of plaque build up in their arteries. This build up is due to a hard substance called plaque that damages the arteries and prevents blood from flowing freely. High blood pressure may also cause an aneurysm.
The force ofyour blood as it travels through your blood vessels is measured by how much pressure it places on your artery walls. If the pressure increases above a normal rate, it may enlarge or weaken the blood vessels. Blood pressure for an adult is considered normal at or below 120/80 mm Hg, or millimetres of mercury. A significantly higher blood pressure can increase the risk for heart, blood vessel and circulation problems. Higher than normal blood pressure does not necessarily put you at risk for aneurysm.
According also to Healthline.com the most common locations of aneurysm are the following aorta and brain. The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body. It begins at the left ventricle of the heart and travels down the abdomen where it splits off into both legs. The aorta is common site for arterial aneurysms. Aneurysm in the chest cavity are called thoratic aortic aneurysms. Abdominal aortic aneurysm are the most common type. In rare cases, both the chest and abdomen can be affected by arterial damage. Aneurysms in the brain can be any size. These often form in the blood vessels that lie deep within the brain.
They also may not present any symptoms or signs. You may not even know you have an aneurysm. Aneurysm of this type may cause bleeding in as many as three percent of people. Symptoms of an aneurysm vary with each type and location. It’s important to know that aneurysms that occur in the body or brain generally don’t present signs or symptoms until they rupture. Aneurysms that occur near the surface of the body may show signs of swelling and pain. A large mass may also develop. The symptoms of rupture aneurysms anywhere in the body can include bleeding, increased heart rate, pain and feeling dizzy or lightheaded. Serious complications from aneurysms can cause death if you don’t get emergency care. In the United states about 13,000 deaths occur each year from aortic aneurysms.
