Aortic aneurysm, coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan. Front view of the abdomen of a 63-year-old patient with an extended aneurysm of the aorta. An aortic aneurysm is a swelling of the aorta, usually due to an underlying weakness in the wall of the artery. This may lead to rupture, causing severe pain, massive internal haemorrhage (bleeding), and, if left untreated, death.
