Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a condition in which the lining of the large artery called the aorta is enlarged within the abdomen. Because abdominal aortic aneurysms are likely to tear if they reach 5 centimeters in diameter, monitoring is important for preventing a rupture.
