Caption: Aortic aneurysm in hypertension, X-ray. Angiogram of a section through the abdomen of a 53-year-old patient with arterial hypertension (high blood pressure), showing an infrarenal aortic aneurysm (dark, centre). An aneurysm is a blood-filled dilation in a blood vessel wall. It is caused by a weakening of the vessel wall, which may be caused by hardening of the vessel (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure or injury. If left untreated an aneurysm can rupture, which is often fatal.
