In brief: NO

Aneurysmal dilatation of the aorta is a pathologic dilatation that does not disappear. Surgical resection makes it disappear.

In brief: No

An aneurysm is a streching or dilating of a blood vessel.
In the aorta, the increase in diameter is caused by changes in the wall itself which leads to progressive enlargement. The size or symptoms will determine if intervention is recommended. Above all the aneurysm should be followed carefully by sonograms or ct scans to monitor size.
