How did I get an aneurysm?

There are many factors that can put you at risk of developing an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Some may be hereditary and others may be related to your lifestyle:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Smoking
  • Age greater than 65 years
  • Male gender
  • Inherited connective tissue disorders: Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and collagen vascular diseases
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Coronary artery disease or heart disease
  • Those with a first degree relative with an abdominal aortic aneurysm are at a greater risk
  • Infection or inflammation
  • Trauma
