Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

The aorta is the largest blood vessel of the body. Some patients develop a problem with the aorta whereby it expands at one particular weak point and if this condition is not treated effectively the aorta can rupture – tragically often with fatal consequences.

Symptoms of an aortic aneurysm

The aneurysm often takes many years to develop and may often show no symptoms at all. Only when the aorta begins to leak do patients notice a sudden severe pain in their abdomen or back.

The diagnosis is usually made by way of an ultrasound or a CT scan after a patient has been admitted to A&E. If diagnosed early the prognosis will be good. A large and growing aneurysm will often be treated with surgery. The surgery will prevent a full rupture of the aorta. Other smaller aneurysms may simply just need careful monitoring.

Treatment is designed to prevent a full blown rupture of the aneurysm which can often prove to be fatal.

In one case we were able to show that an abdominal aneurysm had been reported on a CT scan but then overlooked and not treated or monitored. Sadly, this led to the patient’s tragic early death. We were able to claim compensation for his dependants.
