Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) #6, removed from a 56 year old male. Another nice image of the central channel through the ulcerated thrombus. The channel seen in the image bifurcates to the left and right iliac arteries. Dr. Nir Hus MD., PhD.
The aorta carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to smaller arteries throughout the body. An abdominal aneurysm occurs in the abdominal aorta, the part of the aorta between the bottom of the chest and the pelvis.
