What is aortic aneurysm?

An aortic aneurysm is an abnormal balloon-like or sac-like dilatation of the aorta caused by weakening of the arterial wall. The aorta is the largest artery in the body, originating from the heart and extending down to the abdomen, where it branches off into two smaller arteries.
