Is there a difference between a thoracic aneurysm and a thoracic aortic aneurysm?

Probably not: Technically, "thoracic aneurysm" could refer to any of the arteries in the chest. The thoracic aorta is the most likely to have an aneurysm.

No: A thoracic aneurysm is an aneurysm of the thoracic aorta....More importantly...Whether the aneurysm involves the ascending or descending or entire thoracic aorta makes some difference in treatment.
