In brief: HIgh

I hope the individual with this has already been treated or is about to be treated either by open surgery or with a "stented graft".
Aneuryms of the aorta tend to have 2 "growth" phases - the first is very slow, the second rapid. Typically, the risk of rupture is determined by the largest diameter - either transverse or ap ( anterior to posterior ) which is either 13 or 8.8 !
