An aneurysm refers to an abnormal bulging or ballooning of a blood vessel, resulting from a weakened artery wall. While aneurysms can occur in various parts of the body, such as the brain, chest, abdomen, or extremities, they pose significant health risks due to the potential for rupture and severe internal bleeding. At Complex Health Solutions, we specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of abdominal and lower extremity aneurysms, providing comprehensive care to our patients.
An aneurysm occurs when the walls of a blood vessel weaken, causing a localized dilation or bulge. The exact cause of aneurysms can vary and may involve factors such as genetic predisposition, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (plaque buildup), trauma, infection, or certain medical conditions. Aneurysms are often asymptomatic and may be discovered incidentally during routine medical examinations or diagnostic imaging. However, depending on their location, size, and risk of rupture, aneurysms require careful monitoring and appropriate treatment.
In many cases, aneurysms do not cause noticeable symptoms until they become large or rupture. However, depending on the location and size of the aneurysm, individuals may experience the following signs and symptoms:
