Aortic dissection occurs when there is bleeding into and along the wall of the aorta, the heart's major blood-carrying artery.

If a physician undertakes competent due diligence with diagnosis, he or she will understand your family history and listen to your heart, lungs and abdomen with a stethoscope. If there is an abnormal murmur or other abnormal sound, he or she should immediately investigate further. In addition, if there is a blood pressure difference, that can also be a warning sign. Some dissections require immediate surgery whereas others can be first treated with medication.

When treated properly, a person with aortic dissection will go on to live a normal life. If not diagnosed and treated, it can result in death.

An aortic aneurysm occurs when the large blood vessel that supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis and legs becomes abnormally large or balloons outward. The abdomen can show several signs of an aneurysm, including a lump or mass, a pulsating sensation or stiffness/rigidity. If there are no signs or symptoms, a doctor can detect it via a CT scan or ultrasound.

When treated properly, a person with these complications will go on to live a normal life. If not diagnosed and treated, it can result in death. If you believe a loved one has been misdiagnosed/mistreated, you may be able to pursue a medical malpractice case.
