Q:
What is descending aortic aneurysm?

A:
Descending aortic aneurysms are the third most common aortic aneurysm. Many patients can not notice it for a long period of time. So, most patients are diagnosed in their 6th and 7th decade of life. The descending aorta is in the back of your chest. As the arch of the aorta bends backward from the front of the thoracic cavity, the thoracic aorta descends to the back of the thoracic cavity.
