Can docs explain what does thrombosed aneurysm mean?

Closure. Most aneurysms are lined by clot, due to the flow characteristics inside the aneurysm, meaning flow tries to stay in the middle of the vessel. If the flow slows down enough, the entire aneurysm closes, or thromboses. This occurs frequently in popliteal aneurysms, located behind the knee.
