Abstract

Aneurysm is a permanent abnormal dilatation of an artery or ventricle resulting from localized structural weakness and stretching of the arterial or ventricular wall due to high transmural pressure. Aneurysms occur mainly in systemic arteries and, to a lesser extent, in the left ventricle.
