Dr. Muhammad Ali Rauf MD

beat is unusual there. but if strong can be due to abdominal aortic aneurysm

Dr. Matt Wachsman MD

not necessarily very serious at all. they now do insertion of the artificial lining of the vessel by threading it inside the artery. No open chest surgery most of the time for it. Maybe overnight stay at most.

Dr. Kaushal Bhavsar MD

No it is not always indicating aortic aneurysm. In hypertension this can be seen. And 2d echo is diagnostic in this. Please hit thanks.
