Caption: Aortic stent. Coloured three-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT) angiogram of a 54 year-old man's aorta (frontal view). This patient presented with an unusually large aneurysm on the descending aortic arch. An aneurysm occurs when an artery wall weakens and swells like a balloon. If it bursts, an aneurysm can cause severe internal haemorrhage. This is a rendering of the potential outcome of stent surgery (insertion of a section of mesh tubing), and removal of the aneurysm, to restore normal blood flow.
