My Husband Has Been Dx With Left Iliac Aneurysm If It Ruptures How Would He Know
I have a splenic aneurysm that is 16x15x15mm I also have sciatic pain on left side that comes and goes is this a cause of concern for it rupturing?
Theoretic speak: Two do not have direct correlation, but pain, especially if great enough, causes adrenaline and cortisol to rush out from adrenal gland. Can lead to blood vessel spasms-contract and constrict. Which can, in theory, cause aneurysm to be more susceptible to these physiologic fluctuations. Aneurysms are areas where blood vessel wall is thinner because of the "bubble" effect. Low on possibility though ...Read more
29 yo female with two aneurysms in my splenic artery. Short of breath and pain in upper left abdominal area. Chance of rupture? Elective splenectomy?
Aneurysms: I believe your vascular surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and advise you as there may be no need to operate on these aneurysms unless they reach a certain size. I wouldn't expect shortness of breath to be related to the aneurysms unless they're leaking blood, but the left upper abdominal discomfort is of concern and the vascular surgeon's opinion about this is very important. ...Read more

Not good...see below: An aneurysm is an dilitation of a blood vessel. This is the result of weakening in the wall of the artery. The weakened wall can rupture, and bleeding into the tissues around the knee occurs, causing tremendous pain and swelling. The blood outside the artery can then impinge on flow to the lower leg and foot, causing ischemia. In all, very bad, and one of the reasons to fix aneurysms electively. ...Read more
Is it possible that someone has a ruptured Aneurysm and then lives normally few months after that without any headaches or any major symptoms?
No: A ruptured aneurysm (of any part of the body: brain, chest, abdomen, extremity) would mean that an artery has ruptured. Rupture of an aneurysm typically causes symptoms. If that artery is large, bleeding from a large artery is very hard to stop and contain, and most people with a ruptured aneurysm die if they are not taken to surgery immediately. ...Read more
If intracranial aneurysms are rarely ever detected unless they rupture, shouldn't everyone be screened once you're like 45? Why let them rupture?
Cost too high: Aneurysms are rare. Aneurysm rupture is even more rare. Therefore, to test everyone for aneurysm and then treat then would be a great cost to society with very little benefit. However, because aneurysm rupture is so dangerous, I do encourage immediate family members of a patient that had aneurysm rupture to get screened. It is multiple times more likely you will die from auto accident. ...Read more

It bursts: The wall of the aorta tears because of increased pressure from the expanding aneurysm. Ruptures can be "contained, " with the bleeding confined by the lining of the abdominal cavity, or they can be "free ruptures, " when the bleeding occurs into the abdominal cavity. The second type is more deadly. Mortality with ruptured aneurysms is 50-90%. As many as 50% of people die before reaching the hospital. ...Read more

Blood goes out: Your question is complicated, but a few answers are simple. A ruptured aneurysm will result in the leakage of blood to whatever structures surround the aneurysm. Furthermore, this blood will then exert pressure on the structures likely causing them to malfunction. Ruptured aneurysms are a serious problem and require prompt evaluation and treatment by a physician. ...Read more
