Mayo Clinic Q and A: Former smoker should be screened for abdominal aortic aneurysm
DEAR MAYO CLINIC: My 70-year-old father-in-law smoked for more than 30 years. I read that men who used to smoke should be screened for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. What does this screening involve? What would be done if he is found to have an aneurysm? ANSWER: A number of factors can raise the risk of developing an abdominal aortic aneurysm. One of the most significant is tobacco use. In addition to the direct damaging effects that smoking… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

Mayo Clinic Q and A: Thoracic aortic aneurysms
DEAR MAYO CLINIC: My friend was diagnosed with a thoracic aortic aneurysm. What causes this type of aneurysm, and how fast does it grow? Also, how are thoracic aortic aneurysms treated? ANSWER: A thoracic aortic aneurysm occurs when one or more areas along the wall of the aorta — the body's largest blood vessel — becomes weak or damaged. The aorta carries oxygen-filled blood from the heart to the body, including the brain. With time, the pressure… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

Vascular bioengineering lab receives funding to track aneurysms and predict rupture
(University of Pittsburgh) Pitt researchers received funding to develop a new model to better predict patients at-risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm -- the 15th leading cause of death in the US. They will perform shape analysis and biomechanical simulations and use these data to train a machine learning algorithm to classify different types of aneurysm outcomes. This classifier will be used to develop a predictive model that can help guide clinicians and determine the need for surgical intervention. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Mayo Clinic Q & amp;A podcast: Detecting and treating thoracic aortic aneurysms
A thoracic aortic aneurysm is a weakened area in the major blood vessel that feeds blood to the body. When the aorta is weak, blood pushing against the vessel wall can cause it to bulge like a balloon. This is called an aneurysm. Depending on the cause, size and growth rate, your thoracic aortic aneurysm [...] (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)
