Hello doctor,

I have been diagnosed with dilated vasculature including the abdominal aorta, inferior vena cava and iliac veins (described as aneurysmal in size, 34 mm on right, 21 mm on left). What could cause this? Could stress cause that?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

An aortic aneurysm may result from trauma, infection or most commonly from an intrinsic abnormality of elastin and collagen component of the aortic wall. Genetic abnormalities like Marfan syndrome, Ehler Danlos Syndrome, etc., are associated with aortic syndrome. Risk factors are coronary artery disease, smoking, high BP, and high cholesterol, hyper homocysteinemia, etc.


The Probable causes:

Genetic or hypertension, high cholesterol, homocysteine, etc.

Investigations to be done:

Ultrasound, CT abdomen, angiography, MRI.

Treatment plan:

Surgery.

Preventive measures:

Proper control of risk factors.
