Preventing abdominal aortic aneurysms thanks to knowledge of your DNA

The aorta is the most important blood vessel in the body and runs from the heart through the chest to the abdomen, before splitting and continuing into both legs. An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a blood-filled enlargement of the aorta that can rupture over time. Risk factors include smoking, hardening of the arteries, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, age and hereditary factors.
