The thoracic aorta consists of the aortic root, ascending aorta, aortic arch, and the descending aorta. An aneurysm occurs when the typical diameter of the artery increases by 50%.

The aorta — the major blood vessel carrying blood from your heart to vital organs (aortic aneurysm) The section of aorta that passes through your abdomen (abdominal aortic aneurysm)The section of aorta that passes through your chest (thoracic aortic aneurysm)Blood vessels supplying blood to your brain (brain aneurysm)Blood vessels in other parts of your body, such as your legs, groin or neck.
In some cases, an individual may have an abdominal aortic aneurysm and a thoracic aortic aneurysm. Having an aortic aneurysm increases your risk of developing an aortic dissection. An aortic dissection occurs when a tear develops in the inner layer of the wall of the aorta.
