Good: If an abdominal aortic ultrasound reported that the abdominal aorta was "nonaneurysmal", this means that there was no evidence of a widening (dilation or aneurysm) of the abdominal aorta (non-aneurysmal abdominal aorta). This test is done in selected individuals to evaluate for abdominal aortic aneurysm (aaa), which can be life threatening if became too big. ...Read more

On an abdominal aortic ultrasound do u c the aorta up to the knob around the diaphragm area? Do u always watch the same length?

Beating sensations different areas all around belly button under ribs all different areas is it likely to be abdominal aortic aneurism last few months?
Not likely: Abdominal aortic aneurysms usually have no symptoms or sensation. Sometimes they can be felt through the front abdominal wall. An aneurysm in a 31 y/o without other medical issues would be very unlikely.

Pulsating swelling: The aorta is the largest artery in the human body, originating from the left ventricle of the heart and extending down to the abdomen, where it bifurcates into two smaller arteries (the common iliac arteries). The aorta distributes oxygenated blood to all parts of the body through the systemic circulation. Aortic enlargement causing any swelling will be pulsating swelling. ...Read more
Aorta perception: Better that it is beating than not. The aorta can be felt through the skin in many people, especially if you are thin. When you start to go to sleep, sometimes you become aware of all sorts of heart beats/blood vessels. So this may be normal but a new awareness. But feeling your aorta raises the question of an aneurism that may be expanding, and that would be serious. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Yes.: This implies an aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. An aneurysm is an enlargement of a blood vessel because of weakness in the vessel wall. Like a balloon, if it becomes large enough, it has the potential to burst and lead to a high risk of death. Have it evaluated by a board-certified vascular surgeon who can better advise you on the best course of management. ...Read more

Not necessarily.: There is a significant difference is the average size of the female abdominal aorta versus the male aorta. The average size of the female is about 1.8-2.5 cm, and the average size of the male aorta is higher. If the distal vessels, going to the legs are of normal size and caliber, and the patient is female-there is no concern. If male, then a better look at the walls of the aorta, is needed. ...Read more
Because my abdominal aorta is so small (14mm), does it have to stretch much more than a bigger one?
Not necessarily: We don't know YOUR size - your aorta may be proportionate to your body surface area. Regardless, if you're perfusing your lower extremities sufficiently (easily determined by measuring the BP in your legs and comparing it to your arms), then the size or "stretch" is irrelevant. ...Read more
