An aneurysm is a weakening in the wall of an artery causing the affected segment to bulge or "balloon" out. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood from the heart to all the other organs in the body. If an aneurysm grows too large, it can rupture or burst and cause dangerous internal bleeding or even death.

Many aneurysms occur in the aorta, the main artery traveling from the heart through the chest and abdomen. Aneurysms also can happen in arteries in the brain, heart and other parts of the body. If an aneurysm in the brain bursts, it will cause a stroke.

Our cardiologists at HeartCare Associates can test for an aneurysm before it gets too large, and treat it early before causing serious problems.
