Caption

Aortic aneurysm. Coloured X-ray (angiogram) of an aneurysm (red swelling, lower centre) in the aorta of a 65-year-old man. His two kidneys are at centre left and right, supplied by branching blood vessels (orange). The aorta (yellow/pink, running from top centre) is the main body artery that runs from the heart down to the abdomen. An aneurysm arises from blood pressure stretching a weakened artery wall. This may be due to disease or an inherent weakness. A burst aneurysm will cause severe internal bleeding. Surgical replacement of the weakened section of the artery wall with a graft is usually required.
