P., a man, aged 63 years, had dissecting aneurysm of the aorta extending from the ascending arch to the bifurcation of the abdominal aorta The clinical aspects and the post-mortem observations in 19 cases of dissecting aneurysm of the aorta are described.

Clinically, these patients presented (1) old dissections, with intractable heart failure, which had (a) a “silent” history and course in regard to the dissection, or (b) an active history and course, with repeated attacks of severe pain in the chest that radiated into the Aortic aneurysm can occur anywhere along the aorta segments.

However, isolated aortic arch aneurysm, type A, is less frequent. However, isolated aortic arch aneurysm, type A, is less frequent. Usually it is a continuation of ascending or descending aorta aneurysm, types B, Atherosclerosis, or arteriosclerosis, happens when plaque collects and causes the arteries to narrow and harden, affecting blood flow.

They usually cause no symptoms, except during rupture. Occasionally, abdominal, back, or leg pain may occur.

Large aneurysms can sometimes be felt by pushing on the abdomen. Rupture may result in pain in the   An arterial aneurysm is defined as a focal dilation of a blood vessel with respect to the original artery.
