Genetic Predisposition Testing for Aneurysm

An Aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of an artery that is the result of a weakening in a particular area of that artery. An artery is a blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The force of blood pushing against the weakened or injured walls can cause an Aneurysm.

If the Aneurysm grows large enough it can burst causing internal bleeding, which is often fatal. If an Aneurysm ruptures, low blood pressure, high heart rate, and lightheadedness may occur. The risk of death after a rupture is high.

The symptoms experienced often depend on the location of the Aneurysm. If the Aneurysm occurs near the body's surface, pain and swelling with a throbbing mass is often seen, whereas Aneurysms within the body or brain often cause no symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms of Aneurysms

  • Shortness of breath
  • Sudden, intense and persistent abdominal, chest or back pain
  • Pain that radiates to your back or legs
  • Sweatiness
  • Clamminess
  • Dizziness
  • Low blood pressure
  • Fast pulse
  • Loss of consciousness

What causes Aneurysms?

The majority of cases of Aneurysms have are due to a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. Some non-genetic risk factors that are thought to contribute to the risk of developing Aneurysms include older age, narrowing of the aorta at birth (called coarctation of the aorta), high blood pressure, smoking, and heart disease or high cholesterol (for aortic Aneurysms). People who have a family history of aortic Aneurysm are also at increased risk of developing one. They will tend to develop Aneurysms at a younger age and are at higher risk of rupture.
