Welcome to the Aortic Aneurysms group on Mayo Clinic Connect.
An aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of the aorta. The aorta begins deep in the heart as it emerges from the powerful left ventricle, gently arching over the heart, descending into the chest, and finally into the abdomen. Some aortic aneurysms can be harmless; others can lead to catastrophic problems. I invite you to follow this group and connect with others, share experiences, exchange useful information, and learn about aortic aneurysms. You can get started right away by clicking the +FOLLOW icon on the group landing page.
I’m Kanaaz (@kanaazpereira), and I’m the moderator of this group. When you join, you’ll also likely be welcomed by volunteer patient Mentors and fellow members. Learn more about Moderators and Mentors on Connect.
We’ve got some great conversations going on right now that I think you’ll like. Grab a cup of tea, or beverage of your choice, and lets chat. Why not start by introducing yourself?
