Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a bulge or swelling of the aorta, the main blood vessel that runs from the heart down through the chest and tummy. The disease often causes few or no obvious symptoms, and if left, the swelling can grow larger over time and could potentially rupture, which can be fatal.
