About the disease

Thoracic aortic aneurysm is a condition whereby the upper section of the aorta becomes weakened, causing it to become abnormally widened. The aorta is the biggest artery in the body and supplies blood to the most vital organs.

According to Medline Plus, thoracic aortic aneurysm most commonly develops because of hardening of the arteries. This happens when the artery walls are weakened, due to high levels of cholesterol and chronic high blood pressure. Smokers, people over the age of 65 and anyone who consistently eats foods that are high in animal fat are more at risk. Previous injuries can lead to hardening of the arteries as well.

Thoracic aortic aneurysm tends to develop very slowly. Years may pass before it manifests itself for the first time. In rare cases, thoracic aortic aneurysm develops very quickly. In the case of aortic dissection, which is a blood leakage inside the aorta, symptoms can be sudden. If the aneurysm is stays small, it may remain undetected, but can still be dangerous.

Symptoms

  • Chest pain
  • Tenderness in the chest
  • Pain in the back
  • Rapid heart beat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hoarse throat

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination, the cardiologist or GP will listen to the patient’s heart and measure their blood pressure.
  • The doctor will also ask the patient if they have recently experienced any chest pain or pain in the back. (However, there will be no pronounced symptoms if there is no rupture or bleeding of the aorta.)
  • Imaging tests, such as an X-ray, CT or MRI scan, are used to examine the aorta. They can determine its location and size, and whether any section of its wall has been weakened.  

Treatment

  • Endovascular prosthetics (stenting) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, whereby stents are used to strengthen the weakened part of the aorta.  This procedure is designed to prevent leakage and rupture.
  • Open prosthetics is an open surgical procedure that also uses stents to strengthen the aorta. It is usually performed if rupture or blood leakage has already taken place.
